Abstract

This research project consists in a theoretical and experimental study of oligopolistic markets. I believe that an experimental approach to this subject might help to understand the interplay of the many different factors that affect firms behavior in this context, and to analyze problems which theory does not provide a clearcut answer to. My project develops into two main parts: the first concern how firms can learn to collude tacitly, the second studies deterrence of explicit collusion.
