MARKET ANALYSIS: The use of the market model to examine economic phenomenon involving demand, supply, prices, and exchanges. The simplest market analysis involves identifying equilibrium price and quantity, which is the point of intersection between the demand and supply curves. Some of the more useful market analysis, however, involves comparative static analysis of shifts in either the demand or supply curves, or both curves simultaneously. Other market analysis examines the consequences of price ceilings, price floors, and taxes.

COLLUSION: A usually secret agreement among competing firms (mostly oligopolistic firms) in an industry to control the market, raise the market price, and otherwise act like a monopoly. The reason for the secrecy is that such behavior is illegal in the United States under antitrust laws. Collusion is a characteristic trait of oligopolistic industries. Intense competition and interdependent decision-making encourages oligopolistic firms to cooperate. One way to lessen the competition among an oligopolistic rival is to join forces through collusion. (The other way is through merger, but that's another entry.)
