2c) 2 2 A simple comparison will give us the incentives for exogenous alliance formation between Banks 1 and 2. qxd 10/8/2010 2:29 PM Page 21 Endogenous Collusion and Rivalry 21 Observation 1. The incumbents — following the entry of Bank 3 — have an incentive to form an alliance if C3 > 2C1 + 3∆ − 1. Proof. Banks 1 and 2 have incentives to merge if Eqs. (1c) > (2a). That is, (1 − c1 + ∆1)2 > 9(1 − c1 + ∆ + ∆1)2/16. (2d) Simplification of Eq. (2d) yields the result. 2 Endogenous alliance formation/merger The entry of Bank 3 leads to the possibility of three distinct mergers, or alliance formation — Banks 1 and 2, Banks 1 and 3, Banks 2 and 3.

More recently, technological innovation has allowed banks to operate in markets they never had access to. For instance, small regional banks now offer their services in major capital cities all around Australia without the need to operate branches in these areas. Hence, they now compete directly with their larger competitors. Nevertheless, the results from HHI and concentration ratios indicate that the Australian banking sector is still highly concentrated. Although HHI and concentration ratios allow us to measure competitiveness through concentration, these methods are somewhat flawed as they fail to take into account the behavior of the firms (Australian banks in the present analysis) under consideration.

A consistent conjectural equilibrium is one in which firm i’s conjecture as to how firm j will react to a small variation of i’s output is correct (i, j = 1, 2). Later, the use of a consistency condition was very much criticized. The criticisms drew on the fact that the new solution to duopolistic interaction envisaged economics as a mathematical discipline only dealing with equilibrium relations, rather than with the dynamics of market processes. The condition of correct conjectures placed an excessive and unrealistic requirement upon the duopolists’ forecasting ability.
