Empirical Industrial Organization: A Progress Report

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Liran Einav and Jonathan Levin (both Stanford - Econ) provide Empirical Industrial Organization: A Progress Report.

ABSTRACT: The field of Industrial Organization has made dramatic advances over the last few decades in developing empirical methods for analyzing imperfect competition and the organization of markets. We describe the motivation for these developments and some of the successes. We also discuss the relative emphasis that applied work in the field has placed on economic theory relative to statistical research design, and the possibility that a focus on methodological innovation has crowded out applications. We offer some suggestions about how the field may progress in coming years.
