Noun[edit]

oligopolist ‎(plural oligopolists)

  1. A member of an oligopoly; one of a small number of sellers with undue influence over a market.
    • 2006, Edwin Black, chapter 2, Internal Combustion[1]:
      But through the oligopoly, charcoal fuel proliferated throughout London's trades and industries. By the 1200s, brewers and bakers, tilemakers, glassblowers, pottery producers, and a range of other craftsmen all became hour-to-hour consumers of charcoal. This only magnified the indispensable nature of the oligopolists.
    • 2009 June 5, David Gillen, “In Ratings Agencies, Investors Still Trust”, New York Times:
      “As a classic oligopolist, Moody’s earns exceedingly high margins while paying only the needed lip service to product quality.”
