THE DEFENSE OF PRICE DISCRIMINATION IN NETWORK AND INFORMATION GOODS MARKETS

Ivan Soukal

There can be found many articles in which price discrimination was swiftly considered as a negative phenomenon, mainly behavioural economy studies.

In a competitive global market, a robust regulatory framework is required to mandate organisational compliance involving policies and procedures to ensure accountability (Uddin et al., 2019).
