Industrial Organization is concerned with the study of markets where firms have market power, but more broadly with many aspects of firm decision making.
Over the past several decades, there has been extensive use of IO tools to model how firms interact in markets in order to study a wide variety of policy issues:
- Energy Markets
- Financial Markets
- Labor Markets
