NEW WORLD ECONOMY, WHERE DO YOU FIT

 

Big firms can and do limit competition. It is harder for smaller firms to get a toe-hold in a market dominated by big players with deep pockets.  There are now fewer start-ups and less entrepreneurship, a trend that started in the 1980s and accelerated after 2000. But this may not be all bad if the global tech-driven world favors big firms, that need to spend more on marketing.  A study, from an economist at UC Berkeley, argues that much of today’s merger activity is due to firms wanting to be more efficient, rather than trying to drive their competitors out of business.


If the economy were less competitive, you’d expect firms would become less productive. The opposite is true. One study estimates that the most concentrated industries are the ones where productivity increased the most. It could be the rewards of success: firms that innovated may have become more productive and took a large share of the market. Another study observed that firms that grew and came to dominate their industries were those that made better use of proprietary information technology (IT) systems. The paper found IT use is associated with bigger plant sizes, higher labor productivity, and bigger profits.

Jean Tirole, an economist who won the Nobel Prize for his work on market structure and anti-trust, points out that in a more data-driven economy,  big technology firms can offer products and services that better serve their users when they have multiple product lines which enables them to leverage data across platforms. In tech, bigness is a distinct advantage.
