Course Outline


The course will review the tools needed to bring notions of market equilibrium to data. A review of problems involved in estimating demand systems and production functions will be followed by notes on applied analysis of static equilibria. We then move on to dynamics, with a review of methods for estimating the implications of dynamic models, and computational issues in analyzing Markov perfect equilibria.
