Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58

In this paper, we focus on differences in the communication of firms that either form an explicit cartel or try to collude tacitly. The latter may still ...

Location: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010

We utilize data from the Austrian construction sector and estimate models of first-price sealed-bid auctions with endogenous entry ...
