Price cartel

In the economy, different types of cartels are distinguished. The price cartel is one of the oldest examples of characterization. The price cartel is about agreements around the price of a product in order to achieve or maintain supremacy in the market.

Subforms of the price cartel are:

  • Fixed price cartel - Fixed price for a certain amount of the product
  • Minimum price cartel - lowest price to be offered for a product
  • Quota cartels - Specified maximum amount of a product produced (= effect on the price)

Are in the free economy Cartels nicht wünschenswert, da der Preis in Verbindung mit supply and demand ein Erfolgs-Indikator für die beste Leistung bzw. das beste Produkt sein soll.
