dc.description.abstractThis paper investigates price-setting for truly homogenous products sold in markets withoutany formal trade barriers. We use data from IKEA, a furniture company selling identicalproducts in an identical shopping environment in different EU countries. We get fourremarkable outcomes: 1) The law of one price does not hold. 2) Country-specific effects ofnon-tradable cost components are important. 3) Pricing to the market surely occurs but pricediscrimination is limited by incomplete information. 4) The unexplained part of betweencountryprice variation for identical products is about 75% which leaves most of the intercountryprice variation unexplained.en_US
