Industrial Organization Research Group
All these are examples of the questions that economists specializing in Industrial Organization (IO) analyze. IO is the analysis of market imperfections and imperfectly competitive markets – meaning most if not all real-world markets. Whether you want to understand how well a market works from the point of consumers, firms, employees or the taxpayer (government), IO tools are indispensable for your analysis. IO blends economic theory, knowledge of institutions and empirical methods to address real world questions that are relevant for business and policy.
