This week’s discussion will provide you with an opportunity to apply Froeb’s analytic method.

Read the example in the discussion instructions while keeping in mind the following questions:

  • Who made the bad decision?
  • What information did they have? And was it good, bad, or unclear?
  • What was their incentive?

Instructions

Read the following and then respond to the discussion prompt.

Intel made large loyalty payments to HP in exchange for HP buying most of their chips from Intel instead of rival AMD. AMD sued Intel under the antitrust laws, and Intel settled the case by paying $1.25 billion to AMD.

Address the following in your discussion post:

  • What incentive conflict was being controlled by these loyalty payments?
  • What advice did Intel ignore when they adopted this practice?
    • How did the Robinson-Patman Act apply to their practice?
  • Why did they ignore the advice?
