Julius Caesar, Keanu Reeves, Nicholas Cage, and Econometrics? Four Analytical Insights for Antitrust Counsel
Ai Deng, NERA Economic Consulting; Johns Hopkins University asks Julius Caesar, Keanu Reeves, Nicholas Cage, and Econometrics? Four Analytical Insights for Antitrust Counsel.
ABSTRACT: I discuss four powerful insights in statistics and econometrics that antitrust practitioners can learn and apply, all without any deep understanding of the underlying mathematics. Unlike many existing treatises on econometrics for antitrust practitioners, my discussion in this article focuses entirely on the intuition. Using a series of everyday life examples and analogies, my goal is to convince the readers that you do not need an advanced degree in economics or statistics to become more than dangerous when it comes to econometric analysis in the antitrust domain.
