publish the two newspapers but was operated as a single entity.
a. Before the merger, each of the separate newspapers was losing about
$10 million per year. What forecast would you make for the merged
firms’ profits? Explain.
b. Before the merger, each newspaper cut advertising rates substantially.

merger, what prediction would you make about advertising rates?
