This is a course on empirical industrial organization. The main goal of this course is to help the students to understand the recent methodological development of the field and to develop the students' own idea of research. The primary approach will be reading and discussing papers. Course assignments will include occasional problem sets — some of which may involve programming — and a research proposal that explains the research question, the estimation method and the ideal data for addressing the question.
