Game Changer: Predicting Emerging Market Power Using Game Theory

Podcast
04 August 2021
Hosted By: TWS Partners

NERA Associate Director Dr. C.-Philipp Heller was a guest on the Game Changer Podcast by TWS Partners (episode: “How to Predict Emerging Market Power Using Game Theory”) to talk about the role of game theory in the economic analysis of mergers. He discusses how game theory can help explain why some horizontal mergers may raise competitive concerns and how these need to be balanced against possible efficiencies. Dr. Heller also describes how game theory can be used to predict effects of market consolidations qualitatively using industry facts and with more quantitative tools like merger simulation.
