What he finds in these empirical studies, rather, is an extraordinary complexity of institutional structure bearing on pricing practices. Each industrial area studied revealed an idiosyncratic fabric of diverse interrelations and interdependencies. Each had a different history of emergence; each exhibited a somewhat unique pattern of customary behaviours; each had its own way of arriving at pricing decisions and of implementing pricing judgements. Although cost considerations were of some significance in virtually all pricing judgements, nowhere were they an exclusive concern.

Orthodox economists thought it was unwise for him to undertake such a responsibility and impossible for him to achieve the goal sought (Galbraith, 1952, pp. 2–7). In an important, if small and unfortunately neglected, book reflecting on this experience, The Theory of Price Control (1952), Galbraith explains how his understanding of actual corporate pricing behaviour was comprehensively expanded and empirically reconfirmed by his experience as head of the OPA. , p. iv). Here he distinguished between markets that were imperfectly or monopolistically competitive (oligopolies) and those that still resembled price-competitive markets.
