Leerdoelen Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. Analyse advanced models from contemporary industrial organization theory that examine strategic behavior of firms, and argue how competition policy can be based on these models.
2. Summarize and reproduce computations of contemporary international journal publications in the field of industrial organization and competition policy.
3. Summarize and present a critical review of actual decisions of competition authorities.
Omschrijving In recent years there has been much debate among economists and policy makers about competition policy and the extent of competition on markets. This course discusses in depth parts of the modern theoretical literature on industrial organization theory that underlie the arguments which are used in this lively and challenging debate. Ample attention will be paid to applications of the theory to practical cases. Topics discussed are: market power, market definition, horizontal mergers, vertical mergers, vertical restraints, abuse of dominant position, monopolisation practices.
