Lobo F.
Monopolistic structures and industrial analysis in Spain: the case of the pharmaceutical industry.
Int J Health Serv 1979; 9:(4):663-82


This article seeks to illustrate the monopolistic structure of the Spanish pharmaceutical industry, focusing on its many dimensions. The basic conditions of technology and demand, product differentiation, effect of advertising, and barriers to entry are considered, as is financial and economic concentration. Although economic conditions are emphasized, the ways they affect public and private health, the quality of health services, and health education are also highlighted.
