課程目標 
From the view of antitrust, we want to estimate market power. (For example, the regulator wants to know whether a proposed merger should be allowed.) Since products in most industries are horizontally differentiated, we will spend most of the time on consumer's discrete choice of products in a differentiated market. We will introduce the BLP's (Berry, Levinsohn, and Pakes) framework to empirically analyze this discrete choice problem. We then apply this framework to study various issues, such as price discrimination, competition of durable products, environmental policies. We will also teach Maltab programming to apply these empirical methods.
There is no formal prerequisite. However, you should have learned some econometrics. You are expected to have known OLS, IV estimation, MLE, and GMM. You are also expected to have known basic solution concepts in game theory, such as Nash equilibrium, subgame perfect equilibrium, and perfect Bayesian equilibrium. Basic knowledge of theoretical Industrial Organization is helpful. 
課程要求 
Grades will be determined by classroom participation (20%), one classroom presentation (30%), a takehome midterm exam (25%), and a takehome final exam (25%). Please make sure you can take the exams before enrolling this course.
