His estimates of this markup
differ from others because of two methodological differences.
Angela Park, from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, and colleagues examined variation in price markup
by hospital and by oncology specialty using 2014 Medicare Part B physician reimbursement data.
As a result, the order states, "Barclays did not detect and review excessive markups

This article relies on a large international cross-industry data set to study how the presence of short-term financial constraints (henceforth, liquidity constraints) and the degree of product market competition increase or reduce the cyclicality of markups
. We follow a difference-indifferences identification strategy based on Rajan and Zingales (1998) to provide systematic empirical evidence on whether the strength of financial constraints makes markups
more or less pro- or countercyclical and how this phenomenon relates to the competitive environment prevalent in each industry.
Third-party money manager markups
. Frequently, reps are unaware that they may be paying management fees that are 10 to 15 bps higher than what the fund manager actually charges.

They also indicated that variable utilization eliminates the evidence for increasing RTS, making price markup
close to one, given the absence of large pure profits in the American economy.
Using the coefficients from the econometric model, we first simulated the effect of the observed reduction in markups
over the sample period.
where ln is the natural log operator, [[mu].sub.s] (s = 15, ..., 36) is the estimated markups
at the sectoral level as obtained by the Hall-Roeger cross-sectional model (Eq.
and the business cycle', in Blanchard, O.
