Working Paper Series: The Robustness of International Benchmarks of Competition Intensity: The Case of Mark-ups
Strategic Policy Sector
Economic Research and Policy Analysis Branch
In recent publications, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) argues that competitive forces appear to be relatively strong in Canada compared to other OECD countries. This conclusion is based imperfect proxies that attempt to measure the intensity of competition such as industrial concentration measures, import-penetration rates and relative mark-ups of industries across countries. In this paper, we review the robustness of such an international benchmarking exercise and particularly focus on mark-ups obtained from models developed by Hall (1988) and Roeger (1995).
