Chapter 17: Experimental industrial organization
Restricted access

We present a selective survey of experimental studies on industrial organization (IO) issues centered on recent work. More material can be found in the seminal survey by Holt (1995), the meta-study on collusion by Engel (2007), the book on experiments and competition policy edited by Hinloopen and Normann (2009) and the survey on oligopoly experiments in the new millennium by Potters and Suetens (2013). We believe that the results from laboratory experiments can help understand strategic behavior in general and in industrial organization settings in particular due to the twin virtues of experimentation: control and replicability.
