Industrial Organization is the study of firms in markets and the strategic interaction between them. After a brief review of perfect competition we will study a wide variety of noncompetitive markets. The different market forms that we analyze include monopoly, different forms of oligopolies competing according to Cournot, Bertrand, sequential moves, and location.

Government policies such as antitrust regulation will be introduced toward the end of the course. The grade for the course will be based on problem sets and two exams.
