The thesis examines the nature of cartel stabilit y by trying to complement standard economic analysis with evidence of the institutional detail surrounding such solutions to the problem of oli g opolistic interdependence. Firstly, the thesis discusses the raison d'etre of cartels as well as the factors responsible for their characteristic instability. Secondly, a systematic anal ysis is presented of the data found in the files at the Office of Fair Trading of oligopolistic agreements registered under the 1956 Restrictive Trade Practices Act. Finally, the thesis will describe and analyse in the context of the prior discussion, the outcome, in the case of eight cartels that successfully passed through the Restrictive Trade Practices Court.
