This article gives a general overview of cartels. The development of cartels started in the late 19th century. During this period large businesses emerged and this marked the official beginning of the contemporary cartel movement. The typical story of cartels may not be one of their rise and fall, but rather of their growth, boom, collapse, rebirth, steady decline, and eventual criminality. But up until the 1980s, cartels were a necessary part of the global story of big business, not their absence. They had an impact on organizational change, corporate strategy, and technical advancement. Regarding cartels just as a “conspiracy against the public” sidesteps a number of crucial issues and obscures the vast differences in the goals, forms, and services offered by cartels.


Keywords: Cartels, types of cartels, international cartels.
