Academic Research on Market Failure The vertical integration of production:market failureconsiderations, Williamson, O. E. (1971). The American Economic Review,61(2), 112-123. This article reviews the vertical integration of pharmaceutical manufacturers between 1993 and 1995.

The anatomy ofmarket failure, Bator, F. M. (1958). The quarterly journal of economics,72(3), 351-379. This paper advances the notion that decentralized market calculations correctly account for all 'economic' costs and benefits. It states five possible ways in which duality can fail in a market, the possible causes of these failures, and proposes measures to avoid these failures. This article presents a comprehensive classification scheme for markets, that like the water market, require public intervention in their functioning. Market failureand the economic case for a mandatory disclosure system, Coffee Jr, J. C. (1984). Virginia Law Review, 717-753. The nature of innovationmarket failureand the design of public support for private innovation, Martin, S., & Scott, J. T. (2000). Research policy,29(4-5), 437-447.

The selection principle andmarket failurein systems competition, Sinn, H. W. (1997). Journal of Public Economics,66(2), 247-274.

Journal of economic literature,24(2), 629-675.

The problem ofmarket failure, Randall, A. (1983). Natural Resources Journal,23(1), 131-148. Redistributive cooperation:market failure, wealth transfers, and the Basle Accord, Oatley, T., & Nabors, R. (1998). International Organization,52(1), 35-54. This study analyses the notion that theories of international cooperation rely on claims about joint gains to argue that governments create international institutions to mitigate information and enforcement problems and realize efficient solutions. In this paper, a model is presented in which politicians propose international institutions to resolve domestic political dilemmas and suggest that the international institutions they propose are sometimes intentionally redistributive. This paper aims to show that that domestic politics rather than international market failure motivated American policymakers to propose international regulation using approaches according to Basle Accord. Privatization and corporate governance: The lessons from securitiesmarket failure, Coffee Jr, J. C. (1999).J. Corp. L.,25, 1. This paper analyzes the comparative experiences of Poland and the Czech Republic with voucher privatization. Are network externalities a new source ofmarket failure?, Liebowitz, S. J., & Margolis, S. E. (1995).Research in Law and Economics,17(0), 1-22. This study examines the traditional concept of network externality, which states that a product's value to a consumer changes as the number of users of the product changes. In this paper the authors elaborate a claim that, in spite of the popularity of the concept, several important aspects of network externalities have been neglected or misunderstood. The objective of this study is to show that the empirical importance of network externalities, as externalities, has been greatly overstated. Market failureand government failure, Datta-Chaudhuri, M. (1990).Journal of Economic Perspectives,4(3), 25-39. This study examines the debate in development economics on the relative virtues of the free market as opposed to state intervention. The study shows that development during the last four years has modified the concept of this debate. This paper pieces together some lessons from the development experiences of the last four decades to enrich the general understanding of the role of the state in the process of economic development.
