Abstract:

For a homogeneous population we study a Gompertz model with a fixed shape and a monotonically decreasing scale parameter. We prove that in these settings life expectancy is infinite. Given that mortality rates decrease geometrically at all ages at the same time, we prove that period life expectancy increases linearly. For such mortality rate reduction we derive formulae for cohort life expectancy and its changes over time in terms of its corresponding period life expectancy.

Federal Trade Commission Working Paper: “Petroleum Mergers and Competition in the Northeast United States,” by Louis Silvia and Christopher T. Taylor (Working Paper No. 300, April 2010, .pdf format, 35p.).

Abstract:

Sunoco’s 2004 acquisition of El Paso’s, New Jersey refinery and Valero’s 2005 acquisition of Premcor’s Delaware refinery significantly consolidated refinery control in the U.S. Northeast. The Federal Trade Commission investigated both transactions but challenged neither. We examine the FTC’s enforcement rationale and test whether these mergers were associated with post-merger price increases in either gasoline or diesel at retail and wholesale levels. Our findings indicate that the transactions were largely competitively neutral. There was some indication that some unbranded rack prices may have increased after the mergers, but this result was not robust across controls or assumptions. In some other instances, prices in merger affected areas may have fallen relative to prices elsewhere after the transactions.
