Industrial Organization (377 Books)


Industrial organization is a field of economics that studies the structure of and boundaries between firms and markets and the strategic interactions of firms. The study of industrial organization adds to the perfectly competitive model real-world frictions such as limited information, transaction costs, costs of adjusting prices, government actions, and barriers to entry by new firms into a market that may be associated with imperfect competition.

Working Paper No. 01-13 Patentability, Industry Structure, And Inn...

By: Robert M. Hunt

Government Reference Publication

Abstract: This paper evaluates a model of sequential innovation in which industry structure (the number of firms) is endogenous and a standard of patentability determines the proportion of all inventions that qualify for protection. In equilibrium, the number of firms actively engaged in R&D is the primary determinant of an industry?s rate of progress. The patentability standard affects firms' entry decisions because it affects the expected profits associated with innovations.

In contrast, a capitalist economy requires a cu...

Innovation, Market Structure and the Holdup Problem : Investment I...

By: Abraham L. Wickelgren

Government Reference Publication

Abstract: I analyze the innovation incentives under monopoly and duopoly provision of horizontally differentiated products purchased via bilateral negotiations, integrating the market structure and innovation literature with the holdup literature. I show that competition can improve local incentives for non-contractible investment. Because innovation levels are generally strategic substitutes, however, there can be multiple duopoly equilibria. In some circumstances, mono...
