Saint-Petersburg, Russia
28 June 2016
Hosted By: MSSE (Center for Market Studies and Spatial Economics) & National Research University Higher School of Economics

This year’s Fifth International Conference on Industrial Organization and Spatial Economics is organized by the Center for Market Studies and Spatial Economics and the National Research University Higher School of Economics. NERA Affiliated Academic Prof. Dr. Ulrich Schwalbe presented on pricing behaviour, discussing his paper on empirical analysis of price guarantees: the case of the German petrol market, with Ralf Dewenter from the University of Hohenheim. Based on data from the market transparency unit of the German Federal cartel office Dr. Schwalbe analysed with a difference-in-difference approach whether these price guarantees led to an increase in individual prices as well as the price level in the relevant geographic market.
