    Mergers in Imperfectly Segmented Markets

    We present a model with firms selling (homogeneous) products in two imperfectly segmented markets (a "high-demand" and a "low-demand" market). Buyers are mobile but restricted by transportation costs, so that imperfect arbitrage occurs when prices differ in both markets. We show that equilibria are distorted away from Cournot outcomes to prevent consumer arbitrage. Furthermore, a merger can lead to ...

    Does the European Natural Gas Market Pass the Competitive Benchmark of the Theory of Storage? Indirect Tests for Three Major Trading Points

    This paper presents the first comparative analysis of the relationship between natural gas storage utilization and price patterns at three major European trading points. Using two indirect tests developed by (Fama and French, 1987) and (Fama and French, 1988) that are applied in other commodity markets, we impose the no arbitrage condition to model the efficiency of the natural gas market. The results ...

    Understanding the Roles and Interactions of International Cooperation on Domestic Climate Policies: Editorial

    Introduction: The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change defines the principle of common but differentiated responsibility (Art. 4.1 of UNFCCC). It is the common responsibility of all countries to pursue mitigation actions so as to achieve climate stabilization. The differentiated nature of historic responsibility, capabilities and economic situation creates a responsibility for developed ...

    Policy Targets: Lessons for Effective Implementation of Climate Actions

    Policy targets are used to improve the implementation of domestic and international actions, in a national context and in international frameworks. But how can domestic and international experience be useful for climate policy? Case studies point to the value of defining policy targets more broadly than final outcomes, which in the case of climate policy are CO2 emission reductions. There is a need ...

    A History of Conditionality: Lessons for International Cooperation on Climate Policy

    This article surveys the experience of conditionality provisions applied by the World Bank, the IMF, bilateral donors, and the European Union's accession process. Ownership is essential for effective cooperation and requires domestic climate policies to be country-driven and decision-making to be equitable. Bilateral cooperation allows for a direct exchange of expertise and long-term relationships. ...

    Is Flow Velocity a Significant Parameter in Flood Damage Modelling?

    Flow velocity is generally presumed to influence flood damage. However, this influence is hardly quantified and virtually no damage models take it into account. Therefore, the influences of flow velocity, water depth and combinations of these two impact parameters on various types of flood damage were investigated in five communities affected by the Elbe catchment flood in Germany in 2002. 2-D hydraulic ...

    Linking Alternative Theories of the Firm: A First Empirical Application to the Liquefied Natural Gas Industry

    This paper provides an empirical analysis linking two theories of firms' strategic behavior. We analyze corporate strategies in the emerging global market for liquefied natural gas. First, following Porter, we identify three strategic target market positions: chain optimization, flexibility strategy, and national oil companies (NOCs). Each target market position is supported by an underlying resource ...
