Dozierende Catherine Roux (catherine.roux@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Content:
The course familiarizes students with various topics of modern industrial organization. We analyze the role of imperfectly competitive markets for firms' strategic decisions on, for example, product differentiation, advertising and price discrimination. We also examine the firms' responses to changes in the market environment. Main analytical tools will be microeconomic theory and game theory.
Lernziele -Understand and explain the workings and implications of the theoretical IO models.
-Connect the theoretical insights with practical applications.
-Analyze effects of government policy on competition outcomes.
-Understand and explain how assumptions relate to conclusions in IO theory.
