The Microeconomics Theory is a branch of economic science that aims, among other things, to understand the behavior of economic agents: consumers and firms.
From the description of the text, what Feldman did was just that. He developed a methodology capable of analyzing the behavior of firms in certain circumstances. Thus, this can be considered a good economic experiment, since from this can be made inferences that can give the government the basis to take regulatory measures to combat the inappropriate behavior of opportunistic firms.
