View Abstract

In a recent paper published in this journal, Marsballa and Nesbitt (1986) present an economist's point of view of OPEC pricing.

The purpose of this paper is not to dispute the calculated numbers but to question the qualitative validity of the calculated optimal paths. The claim of this note is that it is very unlikely to generate smooth paths -- e.g. the price strategies shown in their paper -- the presented framework.
