    Common Ownership in the US Pharmaceutical Industry: A Network Analysis

    We investigate patterns in common ownership networks between firms that are active in the US pharmaceutical industry for the period 2004-2014.

While empirical evidence suggests that partitioned pricing affects consumer decisions through salience effects, its consumer welfare consequences ...

    The rise of dominant firms in data driven industries is often credited to their alleged data advantage. Empirical evidence lending support to this conjecture is surprisingly scarce.
