This short note focuses on three issues. First, it explores the effects of algorithms on the ability of suppliers to coordinate their conduct. Second, it explores the ability of existing technological and regulatory tools to deal effectively with algorithmic-facilitated coordination. The final part briefly explores the promises as well as the limits of market solutions to welfare-reducing algorithmic coordination, which can be complementary or provide at least some viable alternative for the possible failure of regulation to deal with algorithmic-facilitated coordination.
