This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

Hello!

I am seeking your kind assistance. Because my company is planning to purchase large water line pipes, they are sending me on a trip to a supplier site. As a buyer, could you provide me with some mandatory questions to assess the supplier as well as some additional advice for me to execute my job effectively? For example, do I need to verify the manufacturing process for the pipes? What type of capacity goals do I need to investigate? These types of sample questions will guide my through the process. If anyone could offer a sample question list and some brief explanations, I would be so appreciative.

Thank you

You have been contracted by a competitor of SBC to conduct some background research on SBC. Specifically, you have been asked to research, compare, and explain the similarities and differences of the breakup of the AT&T/Bell System antitrust problems that occurred in the 1980s to the recently similar problems with SBC/Ameritech. Add to this, the pending acquisition of ATT by SBC.

Using the Cybrary, the Internet, and your course materials, find websites that offer this information and answer the following questions.

Explain the difference between a monopoly and an oligopoly, the welfare effects of monopoly, cost advantages that create monopolies, government actions that create monopolies, and government actions that reduce market power.
SBC and ATT are planning to merge. Apply the information from part one of the assignment and explain whether the newly formed company will be a monopoly or oligopoly. What will be the welfare effects, if any, of this merger? What cost advantages might be created? What actions, if any, do you think the government will take?

Be sure to support your answers with specific facts.
