Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
The Dynamics of Industrial Competition describes the internal dynamics of industries, using new and unique data that make it possible to track firms over time.
Description for Bookstore
The Dynamics of Competition provides the first extensive quantitative examination of the processes associated with competition--entry and exit, mergers, growth and decline of incumbent firms. It uses a unique data base to investigate phenomena in Canada and the United States that have rarely been measured and even more rarely set side by side so as to provide a comprehensive picture of the intensity of competition and its effects on productivity, efficiency and profitability. Comparisons of North American data with those of other world regions are also provided. The book will be of interest to all social scientists who are concerned with the workings of markets--economists, political scientists, governments specialists, antitrust lawyers.

It provides a comprehensive picture of a number of different aspects of firm turnover in North America that arise from the competitive process - the entry and the exit of firms, the growth and decline of incumbent firms, and the merger process. Instantaneous and cumulative measures of market dynamics are provided by examining change in both the short and the long run. Using various measures of firm turnover to proxy the amount of competition, the study examines and contextualizes the relationship between industry performance and the intensity of the competitive process.
