OVERVIEW

This program will consist of three main topics in Industrial Organization : Economics of Platforms, Competition Policy and new empirical aspects of industry dynamics and productivity. The program offers a blend of theory and empirics.

With regard to the first topic, Bernard Caillaud will consider industries organized around platforms such as the video game sector, the media industry or the card payment system. The rising of the internet clearly makes these configurations more and more common. He will develop the theoretical literature that provides the main tools to understand firms’ strategies and market performance of these types of industries.

Competition Policy is obviously a large and diverse subject. We decided to consider this year two main aspects of it.
Philippe Gagnepain will discuss the empirical side of the topic. He will develop the main techniques used to assess market power, cartel damages and to carry out merger simulations. His presentation will be both up-to-date and comprehensive with a particular attention to the applications to cases.
David Spector will address a few economic issues raised in several recent antitrust cases. He will focus in particular on some recent advances in the theory of exclusionary conduct, and on practices that can facilitate collusion, such as information exchanges or certain vertical restraints.

Angelo Secchi proposes an overview of the statistical properties characterizing the structure and the dynamics of modern business firms obtained in the last few decades thanks to the availability of micro data. We set up stylized theoretical frameworks in which the origin of these properties can be investigated. Concerning productivity, Angelo Secchi will present the state of the art techniques to estimate the different indexes of productivity. He will also review the main stylized facts on productivity together with its major determinants.

PREREQUISITES

Students are assumed to have good knowledge of Game Theory, Microeconomics and Econometrics (Master level or very good undergraduate level). Each professor has additional pre-requisites in each course description.
