Description

Industrial Organization is a large, responsive, and policy-relevant field of economics. Always active both theoretically and, especially during the past couple of decades, empirically, the field’s methods and practitioners have considerable influence on antitrust and regulation policy, and data-intensive managerial practices in many industries. The field also has substantial influence and growing overlaps with other fields of economics, including development, macro, and corporate finance.
