''Multiproduct Monopolist and Full-line Forcing: The Efficiency Argument Revisited''
( 2001, Vol. 12 No.4 )
Shaffer (1991) shows that a multiproduct monopolist selling differentiated products through a unique retailer cannot earn monopoly profit using brand specific two-part tariffs and that full-line forcing restores monopoly power. We extend this analysis to more general contracts and shows that full-line forcing is efficient as it increases both industry profits and consumers' surplus.
