Review quote

`From Abatement to Zone pricing, the reader will find here succinctly yet rigorously defined every concept the IO literature has used in recent years. The natural place for this book is in the reference section of the library, and teachers of courses in IO, industrial economics, imperfect markets and so on will find that placing it into the reading list will ensure students are in a position not to misuse technical language with very little effort. To sum up, this is an essential text, in both meanings of the word: it captures the essence of the discipline, and it will be indispensable to its practitioners.' -- Gianni De Fraja, University of Nottingham, UK and University of Rome "Tor Vergata", Italy `The entries of the Dictionary encompass the development of the field of industrial organization, from its origins with the industry-centric structure-conduct-performance paradigm through the much more firm-centric approach of game theory and insights drawn from contract theory, with its emphasis on the incentives facing individuals. It also touches on the development of empirical methods and the symbiotic relation between industrial organization and antitrust/regulatory policy. The entries that follow expand on this introduction, placing specific industrial organization topics and concepts in the context of the field.' -- Stephen Martin, Purdue University, US `. . . an extremely useful reference - an especially valuable resource for practitioners and policymakers in antitrust, and in industrial organization more generally.' -- Paul Klemperer, University of Oxford, UK and former Member, UK Competition Commissionshow more
