Session 3: Empirical Implementation of Theoretical Models of Strategic Interaction and Dynamic Behavior

July 10-12, 2019 | Landau Economics Bldg, 579 Serra Mall, Rm 134 (A), Stanford

The papers for this session are invited from the fields of empirical Industrial Organization (IO), Labor Economics, Public Finance, and Health Economics, Environmental and Energy Economics, and Development Economics. The unifying feature of the papers should be that they each contain a theoretical model of an economic interaction and an empirical implementation of this theoretical model using actual data. Popular topics for papers from previous years—the empirical implementation of models of auction market equilibrium, discrete choice models of differentiated product demand and oligopoly equilibrium, dynamic models of individual and group behavior, and analysis of experiment data of policy interventions in circumstances of non-random assignment or self-selection. A clear link between the theoretical economic model and econometric model should be a hallmark of the papers presented.

Organizers: John Asker (Columbia) and Frank Wolak (Stanford)
