Abstract

Price discrimination requires sufficient separability of customers, sufficiently high costs of arbitrage and sufficient market power. It involves transferability of the good and/or transferability of demand. It can be categorized as first degree (or perfect), second degree (or self-selection), or third degree (multimarket). Its impact on consumer surplus is ambiguous.
