Competition under the microscope (Lecture w/ Exercise)

ECTS:

Course suitable for:
Bachelor
Language of instruction:
English
Hours per week:
4
Attendance:
On-campus and online, live
Registration procedure:
Prerequisites: Microeconomics A + B. Good command of basic game theory.

Goals and contents of the module: Competition is at the core of many economic activities, but it can come in various shapes and forms. For example, in some settings it can be profitable to imitate a rival, in others it is better to do something else. Competing hard can pay off but it can also backfire. Sometimes, it is advantageous to be unpredictable, sometimes not. There are situations in which competing for a reward carries substantial risks because it involves non-refundable expenses, and there are equally competitive situations in which this is not an issue at all. This module takes a closer look at fundamental principles of competition in markets, contests, and auctions. The focus will be on game-theoretical models that describe various competitive settings and deliver predictions, and on experiments that implement such settings in the laboratory and then investigate behavior as well as outcomes under controlled conditions, testing the theoretical predictions. Topics will include output, pricing, and quality strategies, collusion, market structure, market entry decisions, contests, and auctions. There will also be a brief introduction to the role and use of experimental methods in economics more generally. Furthermore, to facilitate learning and a better feel for different situations characterized by competition students will participate in several experiments themselves.

Expected competences acquired after completion of the module: On completion of the module students will have gained a better understanding of model-based theoretical arguments and experimental research methods-specifically in the area of competition economics but also more broadly. Students will have acquired improved analytical skills of solving game-theoretical problems and foundation knowledge of elementary approaches to investigating the nature of competition in a range of applications. They will have developed their ability to critically evaluate empirical evidence and theoretical approaches in economics.

Language of instruction:
English
Hours per week:

Attendance:
Online, live
Registration procedure:
Prerequisites: E601–603 (or equivalent); experience with statistical software such as Stata will be helpful

Goals and contents of the module: International trade has always generated a great deal of controversy. By focusing on the determinants, patterns, and effects of international trade, this course demystifies some of the complex issues that surround discussions of globalization. Why do countries trade with each other? Who gains and who loses from international trade? What are the labor market consequences of international trade, and is trade liberalization responsible for rising inequality? Why do countries have trade disputes?
  • Our first goal is to introduce the canonical models in international trade. A tentative list of topics includes the gravity equation, neoclassical trade theory, trade and labor markets, economic geography, and the role of firms in international trade. 
  • The second goal is to present the empirical tools used in international trade. A tentative list of topics includes the US-China trade war, trade and labor market, and the gravity equation. Students will also get familiar with several widely used trade-related datasets and learn how to conduct empirical analysis.
  • Our third goal to introduce frontier researches to students. We will draw on some recent academic papers from international trade, which will allow students to have a good understanding of cutting-edge researches and help students outline future research questions.

Expected competencies acquired after completion of the module: 
Firstly, students will have a comprehensive knowledge of the core trade models. To be specific, students are expected to be able to define and interpret the key features and the limits of the international trade theories learnt in this course. 
Secondly, they are expected to have a good understanding of the empirical tools in international economics. They are expected to be able to apply and integrate the knowledge learnt in this course to conduct independent researches. 
Thirdly, they will improve their competencies in scientific writing and presentation skills. The group work in this course will allow students to learn to communicate and work efficiently with other students. They are able to bear particular responsibility in a team.
