This course investigates how rms compete. The central issues concern rms' choice of price, quantity, and quality in imperfectly competitive markets. Topics include: monopoly pricing, price discrimination, oligopoly behaviour, product di erentiation, collusion and cartels, asymmetric information, rm entry and barriers to entry, exogenous and endogenous sunk costs, technology, innovation and patents, and vertical and horizontal integration. We develop theoretical models and use them to study individual industries.​
