Definition Edit

Monopoly power is the ability to control prices and exclude competition in a given market.[1] If a firm can profitably raise prices without causing competing firms to expand output and drive down prices, that firm has monopoly power.[2]

Proving the existence of monopoly power through indirect evidence requires a definition of the relevant market.[3]
