Reciprocal buying arrangements : a problem in market power? a technical report / by W.T. Stanbury, Faculty of Commerce & Business Administration, University of British Columbia.: Z1-1975/1-41-24E-PDF

"This study examines the question, "To what extent does the practice of reciprocity by business firms constitute an economically significant restraint of trade?" Although there are somewhat different interpretations of the term, at this point we can say that reciprocity refers to trade between firms when the potential volume of one firm's purchases from others induces those others to buy from it. Reciprocal dealing ranges from a mutually convenient exchange of inputs and outputs between firms to what has been called coercive reciprocity. In the latter, the dominant firm in the "partnership", usually on the basis of its purchasing power, uses threats or pressure to induce its suppliers to buy its output"--Introduction, page 1.
