|ECON 305 - INDUSTRIAL ORGANIZATION|
Industrial Organization is a policy course concerned with the way in which markets are structured, and the influence of government regulation. Theoretical approaches and empirical evidence will be considered. The three broad subject areas covered will be: theories and paradigms explaining how markets operate, case studies of how specific industries operate, and the role of government regulation on the behavior of industries. Students study how firms strategically react to rivals, customers and the government. The course will also cover the development of Anti-trust and social regulation, and the effect these have had on American business. The goals of the class include: to learn the terms and models economists use to identify, understand and predict market behavior; to learn specific facts about various industries; to understand where market power comes from; and to investigate and compile information on an industry and to present this material in a lively and interesting manner.
