Abstract: This paper investigates the interaction between the manufacturer's discriminatory wholesale pricing and the retailers' retail price matching guarantee. Our analysis shows that if the manufacturer follows a uniform wholesale pricing regime, then the price-matching prevails at equilibrium as it facilitates tacit collusion between the retailers. The increase in retail prices, resulting from the price-matching, hurts the manufacturer's profitability. If the manufacturer follows a discriminatory wholesale pricing regime, then price-matching does not prevail at equilibrium. Surprisingly, we find that a ban on wholesale price discrimination (e.g.,Robinson-Patman Act) reduces the supply chain efficiency and the consumer welfare by enabling tacit collusion between retailers via price-matching guarantees. This finding is in contrast with the findings of the extantliterature which shows that a ban on wholesale price discrimination can bewelfare improving when retailers cannot engage in price-matching. We show that our results are robust with respect to demand asymmetry and cost asymmetry between retailers, as well as information heterogeneity among customers.
