cartel: Definition, Synonyms and Much More from Answers.com (1827 words)
Cartels are prohibited by antitrust laws in most countries; however, they continue to exist nationally and internationally, formally and informally.
In general, cartels are economically unstable in that there is a great incentive for members to cheat and to sell more than the quotas set by the cartel (see also game theory).
Empirical studies of 20th century cartels have determined that the mean duration of discovered cartels is from 5 to 8 years.
