Empirical Models of Firms and Industries

Victor Aguirregabiria, University of Toronto - Department of Economics and Margaret Slade, University of British Columbia (UBC) offer Empirical Models of Firms and Industries.

ABSTRACT: We review important developments in Empirical Industrial Organization (IO) over the last three decades. The paper is organized around six topics: collusion, demand, productivity, industry dynamics, inter-firm contracts, and auctions. We present models that are workhorses in empirical IO, and describe applications. For each topic, we discuss at least one empirical application using Canadian data.
