Further Information

additional remarks This course deals with interactions among market participants, particularly scrutinizing markets under incomplete competition. The course starts with a comparison of the main characteristics of different market forms such as monopoly, oligopoly, monopolistic competition, and perfect competition. Building on this knowledge, the lecture addresses topics such as price discrimination among consumers with different willingness to pay, strategic product differentiation, syndicates, vertical concentration, price-fixing and mergers. The course aims to communicate basic concepts and models of industrial organization theory, focusing on game-theoretic methods, and applying these to the decisions of market participants under strategic competition.
