We discuss theory, policy applications, causal inference, and relevant empirical research throughout the course.

This course will explore various imperfectly competitive market structures and show how competition affects consumers, producers and the economy as a whole. We will also discuss competitive markets that are unlikely to achieve efficient resource allocations, by introducing the concept of externalities and public goods.
