Has the American Economy become dominated by monopolies? Do the big tech companies have too much market power and do they use their power to harm or benefit consumers, workers, and entrepreneurs? This course explains how economists define and analyze market power and anti-competitive practices (industrial organization) in a number of industries and addresses how economic theory and data are used in relevant policies like antitrust and sector-specific regulation. Graduate students should register for ECON 6360 and will be held to higher standards and/or additional work.
