The local monopoly( DEWA). Issues in monopoly Is monopoly good or bad ? References. Definition of monopoly: A market in which there are many buyers but only one seller. When you have a monopoly you can ask any price you like. Perfect competition , monopolistic competition , oligopolistic , monopoly ( numbers of firms , price ) Sources of monopoly entry barriers: Natural monopoly: the most efficient scale of production is so large, relative to market demand, a single firm dominates the market. Patents, copyrights, licenses, franchises: government protection of a firm’s to produce a unique product. Economic and/or legal restrictions, strategies or situation that make entry more difficult for new competitors than for the existing monopoly firm. Natural monopolies: Goods and services whose delivery requires the construction of a physical network (wires, pipes, etc..) In such industrial (local phone service, water sewage removal, electricity, gas) the physical networks display decreasing marginal cost over essentially all quantities. Thus, average total cost is always declining and the minimum efficient scale is much larger than the size of the market. Natural monopolies are often regulated: they cannot charge a higher price without government approval. Natural Monopoly and the Firm Single Source Suppliers: Benefits of SSS: Lower transactions costs Pecuniary economies (volume discounts) much more likely when the supplier experiences real economies. Costs of SSS: Lack of competition. after the contract is formed. DEWA is the state-owned vertically integrated utility of the Emirate of Dubai: Is the state-owned monopoly provider of electricity and water in Dubai. It serves more than 480,000 customers. DEWA is one of the more commercially minded power utilities in the region, given its history of good operational and financial performance. DEWA was recognized as one of Dubai's best government departments ("Government of Dubai Excellence Gold Award" ) In 1992, the government appointed DEWA as the sole producer and supplier of electricity and water within the Emirate of Dubai. DEWA does not face competition from any entity in its domestic market and this excludes the possibility of the Authority being exposed to any competitive pressure. No expectations to change to DEWA’s monopoly status Issues in monopoly Only one firm sells the product No ( close ) substitutes Is Monopoly Good or Bad? It is good because : Is that they may be able to raise their price as they want to and no one can say anything. They can be the only people that give that product since if a competitor decides to join then the monopoly can lower its prices causing the competitor to have to break down and cant function at such a low cost. Some services if their is more than one company that would be ridiculous because this means that they would both increase the price and people will not benefit from this. It is bad because: Monopolies are usually bad for an economy because they restrict free trade, which allows the market itself to set prices. Because the manufacturer has no incentive to innovate, and provide "new and improved" products. Monopoly is nearly always seen as something undesirable. Courts have wrestled with monopoly for ages, sometimes defining it as: "the power to control prices and exclude competition", "restraining trade", or "unfair and anti-competitive behavior."

Transcript: Monopoly A situation in which a single company owns all or nearly all of the market for a given type of product or service. This would happen in the case that there is a barrier to entry into the industry that allows the single company to operate without competition (for example, vast economies of scale, barriers to entry, or governmental regulation) Monopoly symbolizes domination over a product to the extent that the enterprise or individual dictates the terms of access and the markets for availability. The term is specific to a seller's market. A similar situation in the buyer's market is referred to as monopsony. It first appeared as an economics-related term in 'Politics' by Aristotle. A natural monopoly is defined in economics as an industry where the fixed cost of the capital goods is so high that it is not profitable for a second firm to enter and compete. There is a "natural" reason for this industry being a monopoly. It is an extreme imperfect form of market. In ancient times, common salt was responsible for natural monopolies, till the time people learned about winning sea-salt. Regions facing scarcity of transport facilities and storage were most prone to notorious acceleration of commodity prices and uneven distribution of daily-use products and services. The characteristics of monopoly are solitary to the condition generated by intent. Characteristics
