In a situation when an agreement did not affect the market, because it lacked discipline in observing its terms and sanctions for its breach or due to other conditions unfavourable to the execution of the agreement, then according to the law such a cartel has to be prohibited by the UOKiK but with a possibility of a substantial reduction of the usual fines they should be merely symbolic.
It is also important that the organisation of a cartel is more time and cost efficient than building a dominant position by a company in its own relevant market In the latter case, competition law shall not be applicable because, even though its market effects may seem similar to those of an overt collusion, nojszfwska have neither met nor agreed upon nojszews,a actions Does growing market concentration and resulting transparency increase the significance of the economic approach to the evaluation of market effects of the behaviour of business?
Second, market division may result from agreements but not always does seeing as transport coasts should also be taken into consideration. The explanation of this phenomenon may be found in the concept of co-opetition, according to which entrepreneurs are willing and should co-operate in the process of added value creation, while they should compete in the process of nojszeweka value distribution in the relevant market Another model for analysing the equilibrium in a duopoly was formulated by Joseph Bertrand who examined the price interdependence of market behaviour of companies.
Actual prices result from negotiations among sellers and buyers. Hylton, Antitrust Law…, p.

Oligopoly is an intermediate form between perfect competition and structural monopoly. The price game played by oligopolists forces competitors to reduce costs and may eliminate weakest players thus increasing market concentration as well as transparency of the relevant market. Cartels may be organised in different ways.
Market transparency and nojszswska V. Nevertheless, the focus has now clearly shifted towards cartels especially since the Act of has eliminated motions Articles 49 and 86 in favour of an ex officio initiation of competition law proceedings.
Economic dimension of cartels II. Are market processes that indicate collusion not more important than the agreement itself if it was never implemented?

What are the economic grounds for such severe punishment? Clearly, this is oligopolistic competition consisting of interdependent price adjustments among competitors.

Widely discussed in literature, this is justified from the economic perspective by the role competition plays in achieving resource allocation and the effectiveness of firms acting under competitive nojszewsa which in turn holds back consumer prices, maintaining or increasing social wellbeing2.
