PRICE LEADERSHIP: A method used by a group of firms in the same market (typically oligopoly firms) in which one firm takes the lead in setting or changing prices, with other firms then following behind. The lead firm is often the largest firm in the industry, but it could be a smaller firm that has just historically assumed the role of price leader perhaps because it is more aware of changing market conditions. While price leadership is totally legal, it could be a sign of collusion, particular implicit collusion, in which the firms have effectively monopolized the market.

OLIGOPOLY, BEHAVIOR

Oligopolistic industries share several behavioral tendencies, including: (1) interdependence, (2) rigid prices, (3) nonprice competition, (4) mergers, and (5) collusion. In other words, each oligopolistic firm keeps a close eye on the decisions made by other firms in the industry (interdependence), are reluctant to change prices (rigid prices), but instead try to attract customers from the competition using incentives other than prices (nonprice competition), and when they get tired of competing with their competitors they are inclined to cooperate formally and legally (mergers) or informally and illegally (collusion).
