Describes the 1990s consolidation on the newsprint industry. Questions whether consolidation will ever deliver on its promise. Whereas some industry observers maintain that the effects of consolidation are already visible, others argue that further consolidation is necessary. Others, however, claim that because newsprint is a commodity and firms compete on the basis of price, consolidation will not restore industry profitability.

Illustrates the transition from a perfectly competitive industry (demand and supply) to oligopolistic competition (Porter's five forces).
