Problem

Unfair pricing by transnational corporations

Nature:
Manipulation of prices for goods and services sold within the corporation and involving transactions both between parents and subsidiaries and among individual subsidiaries themselves, is possible because of the oligopolistic and monopolistic power exercised by transnational corporations in respect of the production and distribution of particular goods. Transnational corporations frequently hold such market power not only in the national markets of both developed and developing countries, but also in the world market.
