This course is self-sustained and there are no pre-requisites to attend this course. Basic knowledge of game theory and econometrics may help, but it is not compulsory.
This course introduces students to empirical methods in Industrial Organization.
Programma e contenuti
The first part of the course hinges on the software Comlabgames and covers different topics in game theory applied to industrial organization. The second part of the course focuses on various applications of industrial organization using the econometric package STATA. Occasionally some applied papers may be reviewed during the course.
By the end of the course students are expected to be able to design and run their own games/experiments on the computer, as well as to analyze actual datasets and produce econometric inference.
The course is mainly computer-based and will be held in a computer lab.
