    Κωδικός Τμήματος



    The aim of the course is understanding the functioning of imperfectly competitive markets. We start with a brief description and analysis of the theory of the firm and then continue with the detailed analysis of imperfectly competitive markets. The issues discussed revolve around how firms acquire market power, what are the consequences of market power, and whether there is a role for public policy in promoting competition. Case studies refer to the economies of the Central, Eastern and South-eastern Europe. Since game theory is an essential tool for analysing markets in which strategic interdependence exists, it is recommended, though not a prerequisite, that the choice of Game Theory Applications course be preceded by the Industrial Economics course.
