        Under Canada’s competition laws, predatory pricing occurs when an incumbent with market power sets its prices below avoidable costs. There’s an important distinction between price cuts that reflect a firm’s genuine efforts to enhance value or performance to better serve customers, and predatory pricing to drive out the competition. Basic Economics is a citizen's guide to economics-for those who want to understand how the economy works but have no interest in jargon or equations. Sowell reveals the general principles behind any kind of economy-capitalist, socialist, feudal, and so on. In readable language, he shows how to critique economic policies in terms of the incentives they create, rather than t/5.

      A business with market power can take advantage of its market dominance to drive a competitor out of business or to prevent new competitors from starting up. This can reduce or eliminate competition from a market, harming consumers and the wider economy by increasing prices. Is predatory pricing illegal in the U.S.? There is a long history of legislation against monopolistic behavior in the United States, and predatory pricing comes under that banner. American antitrust laws exist to preserve competition in the market, and according to those laws, most forms of predatory pricing are illegal. A pricing strategy is considered predatory if its goal is to price.

      Predatory pricing is when a company sets prices on their product so low that they lose short term profits in an attempt to drive competitors out of the market. In theory, the company can then recoup the lost profits by raising prices when the competitors have left. Predatory pricing hurts the general market by reducing competition. The Antitrust Paradox by Robert Bork is your third recommendation. Why? The Antitrust Paradox was an extremely important book, a real example of how ideas can have a major impact in the world, for better or for worse. It was an important corrective to some of the badly thought-out overreaches in antitrust policy at the time and advocated for concepts that are still relevant today.
