Theory and Empirical Work on Imperfectly Competitive Markets

Ariel Pakes

NBER Working Paper No. 14117
Issued in June 2008

---- Acknowledgements -----

This is a revised version of my Fisher-Schultz Lecture which was presented at the World Congress of the Econometric Society in London, August 2005. The paper draws extensively from past interactions with my students and coauthors, and I would like to take this opportunity to express both my intellectual debt and my thanks to them. I like to think they enjoyed the experience as much as I did, though that might have been harder for the students in the group. For help on this paper I owe a particular debt to Robin Lee, and to my theory colleagues for helping me to come to terms with parts of their literature. Financial support from the NSF and the Toulouse Network for Information Technologies is greatly appreciated. The word "theory" in the title refers to both economic and econometric theory. The views expressed herein are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
