For each Berlin IO Day, we will invite four or five speakers to present their recent work on a variety of IO topics, followed by a general discussion. The aim is to create an international forum for high quality research in Industrial Organization in the heart of Berlin, one of Europe's most vibrant and intellectually lively cities.

    Growing Clean? Directing Technological Change in Germany

    Speaker: Nils Handler, DIW Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B + 3.3.002C

    The emerging net zero paradigm requires economies to go green; and Europe’s ambition is to lead the way. This requires directing technological change toward cleaner growth, which intersects with green industrial policies in the form of green innovation subsidies. Leveraging a quasi-exhaustive novel dataset on German R&D subsidies, we provide rigorous evidence on whether green R&D subsidies ...

    Time:
    11:30 - 12:00
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B + 3.3.002C

    The acquisitions of startups by Google, Amazon, Meta, Amazon and Microsoft have steadily increased over the past years and have become more diversified. The current discussion about strategic motives for such acquisitions is vivid – especially in light of present concerns about the market power of gatekeepers, faster technological advances and digitalization. The principal question remains whether ...

    Heterogeneous Sourcing, CO2 Emissions and Trade

    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B + 3.3.002C

    International trade separates the location where emissions occur (production) and where they are ultimately consumed. Thus, a substantial share of emissions is embodied in international trade. Moreover, firms within narrowly defined industries differ in their emission intensity. However, most firm-level studies only consider the direct emissions released during the production process. In this ...

    Local Currency Pricing by Firms: Evidence from China’s Renminbi (RMB) Reforms

    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B + 3.3.002C

    This paper examines the impact of RMB internationalization reforms on invoicing currency choices of firms exporting to China. Using detailed French customs data spanning 2011-2017, it documents three novel stylized facts on RMB adoption and suggests a novel mechanism that drives the self-selection of firms into RMB invoicing. Additionally, it provides causal estimates of the impact of RMB use on ...

    How Divestitures Affect Bargaining Power

    Speaker: Yann Delaprez, European University Institute
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B+C

    This paper studies how bargaining power is affected by merger and divestiture policies. I provide a new empirical framework to compute bounds on brand-level bargaining weights using widely available sales data. Next, I exploit the variation in brand ownership caused by a large merger, cleared conditional on divestiture, in the U.S. deodorant market, to quantify the extent to which divestitures ...

    Time:

    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B+C

    What is the “right” geographic definition of relevant markets? We study how unexpected and exogenous increases in excise duties in petroleum products were passed-through to retail prices in the Athens region and examine how the degree of the pass-through varies across different geographic relevant markets. Using various definitions of the relevant geographic market, we find that the most ...

    When Competition is not Desired: the Case of Antibiotic Prescribing

    Speaker: Temulun Borjigen, DIW Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B+C

    Antibiotics are effective in treating bacterial infections. However, the excessive usage of antibiotics leads to the development of antibiotic resistant bacteria, which significantly reduces their effectiveness. Current strategies to address antibiotic resistance mainly target primary care physicians, who serve as the gatekeepers of antibiotic prescriptions in many countries. Therefore, it is ...

    Government Ownership and Competition: Evidence from the European Airline Industry

    Speaker: Christina Stadler, DIW Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B+C

    This paper empirically analyses the impact of government ownership on competition in monopoly and duopoly markets. We use the European Airline Industry as a laboratory. In our empirical strategy we exploit two sources of exogenous variations that allow us to cleanly filter out the effect of government ownership on the likelihood of exit. First, we study government ownership that was triggered by a ...

    Limited Price Competition Among Real Estate Agents and the Role of Inattention

    Speaker: Julius Stoll, Hertie School
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B+C

    This paper relates incomplete price competition among real estate agents to inattentive home sellers. I exploit a recent legal reform in Germany which specifically aimed to increase price competition among real estate agents by raising the cost salience of sellers. I find that the reform backfired and real estate agents exploited the transition to increase their total commission rate by 0.3 ...

    Free Allocation and Exports

    Speaker: Robin Sogalla, DIW Berlin
    Time:

    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B+C

    The European Emissions Trading System (EU-ETS) is the key policy tool of the EU to reduce GHG emissions. To prevent carbon leakage, most of the emission permits have been allocated for free in the industrial sector. A carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM) will be introduced end of 2023 as an alternative carbon leakage protection instrument. However, the CBAM will only gradually replace free ...
