15 The third question is: why did coordination break down beginning in the late sixties? The root cause appears to have been the rising flow of imported steel. S. Steel's 21% market share. Our theory suggests that this increasing presence was disruptive for the following reasons. Imported producers had different cost, demand, and profit functions than the American producers. This meant the foreign companies had little reason to join the domestic producers' kinked demand game. F. O'Boyle, Big Steel is Hurting in Buyer Market, Wall Street Journal, 28 May 1985, pp.

For example, consider Kalai and Stanford's model of a repeated duopoly game where the two firms play the tit-for-tat strategy against each other. If the length of each time period is shrunk toward zero, which means the delay between a firm's deviation and subsequent punishment is also shrunk toward zero, then the equilibrium price approaches the collusive price, which is the same result we obtain in this paper. A second literature related to this paper's results is on facilitating practices. A facilitating practice or device, as defined by Salop (1985), is an established custom governing the manner in which firms compete against each other that has the effect of making coordination of their prices easier.

The analysis of Section 4 shows that, for collusive structures, the meeting competition practice that our model represents leads to the collusive price being the equilibrium price. Suppose firm i considers deviating from the meeting competition practice by charging a price p higher than the collusive price m. , firm i would not increase its profits even if the other n - 1 firms followed the increase. Clearly if the other n -1 firms do not follow its price up to p, then firm i's realized profits are less than Ii (p), which itself is less than J;(m).
