Remedies against monopoly
You can almost see the present system of announced prices, with unannounced promos maintained by the telecoms, as a form of price discrimination, a concept familiar to students of economics.
The two aren’t quite monopolies. But for the sake of discussion only, imagine that they are a two-piece cartel, a bikini in nosebleed-speak.
What can consumers do to foil a price-discriminating monopolist/cartel?
Any interesting answers out there?
