Tirole begins with a background discussion of the theory of the firm. This paper looks at the regulatory reforms in the electricity and downstream oil industries, two important inputs to the production process that were heavily regulated by the government. While electricity has strong externalities as well as economies of scale and scope, the oil industry does not exhibit natural monopoly characteristics nor does it display economic features that would warrant government regulation. In the absence of competition laws, there is a risk that liberalization may not be sufficient to foster effective competition and would also be difficult to control possible abuses of dominant positions by large-scale firms including multinationals. It is also time to adopt an integrative approach recommended by Yeung through comparative research of businesses and economies in different institutions and cultures.
Moreover, the efficiency variable is insignificant in the smaller size classes Both the statistical insignificance of concentration and the pattern of the efficiency variable coefficients suggest that including concentration in the regression specification without the efficiency variable simply highlights the effect of the efficiency variable.

Using the four-firm concentration ratio, this study applies Chappell and Cottle's extension of the Demsetz test to distinguish between the monopoly explanation of this correlation and the efficiency explanation. Each chapter opens with elementary models and builds on this base to incorporate current research in a coherent synthesis. This correlation is consistent with both the monopoly hypothesis of the traditional structure-conduct-performance paradigm and Demsetz's efficiency hypothesis that concentration of industry reflects the dominance of superior low-cost firms.
The Handbook is a major reference work for scholars researching the causes of success and failure in international business in Asia.
