The Berlin IO Day

The Berlin IO Day is a one-day workshop sponsored by the Berlin Centre for Consumer Policies (BCCP) and and the Society of Friends at DIW Berlin (VdF) supported by the Berlin's leading academic institutions, including DIW Berlin, ESMT Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Technische Universität Berlin which takes place twice a year, in the Fall and in the Spring.

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.

    Government Ownership and Competition: Evidence from the European Airline Industry following the COVID-19-Pandemic

    Speaker: Christina Stadler, DIW Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Rooms 3.3.002A+B+C

    This paper empirically analyses the impact of government ownership on competition. The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent governmental equity interventions in the European airline industry provides for a particularly ideal setting to investigate this topic, and this for several reasons. First, airline markets and competition therein are well-defined and well-understood. Second, European countries ...

    Sponsored Bids in Online Labor Markets

    Speaker: Jonas Hannane, DIW Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Ferdinand Friedensburg Room 2.3.001

    Advertising on e-commerce platforms, which enables third-party sellers to place their products as sponsored listings within organic results, is a widespread phenomenon, creating large revenues for online marketplaces. While economic theory suggests that advertising can serve as a signal for product quality, the empirical evidence is ambiguous. In this project, I collect data from a leading online ...

    The Emission Intensity Effect: Carbon Border Adjustments in the Presence of Heterogeneous Firms

    Speaker: Robin Sogalla, DIW Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Karl Popper Room 2.3.020

    In the absence of globally coordinated action to combat climate change, governments are concerned that ambitious carbon pricing could harm the competitiveness of emission-intensive industries. A prominent measure to prevent that manufacturing producers relocate to countries with laxer environmental regulation are carbon border adjustments often referred to as carbon tariffs. Several studies have ...

    Competition and Mergers with Strategic Data Intermediaries

    Speaker: Antoine Dubus, ETH Zürich
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Room 3.3.002a-c

    We analyze mergers between strategic data intermediaries collecting consumer information that they sell to firms competing in a product market. We show that a merger: (a) reduces the intensity of competition in the product market through a change in the selling strategies of merging intermediaries; (b) increases data collection, reducing consumer surplus through a better rent extraction. We argue ...

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Role of Institutions for High Growth Firms in European Regions

    Speaker: Sara Amoroso, DIW Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Rooms 3.3.002a-c

    High growth firms are high on the policy agenda as empirical evidence consistently shows that they disproportionately contribute to economic growth via net job creation. Several innovation scholars analyze how high growth entrepreneurship responds to the local enabling environment, such as institutional and framework conditions. However, the majority of these studies look at the role of formal ...

    Sponsored Search: How Platforms Exacerbate Product Market Concentration

    Speaker: Akhil Ilango, Universitat Pompeu Fabra Barcelona
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 10:30 - 11:30

    How does online advertising affect consumer behaviour, product pricing and competition? To analyse this, I develop a theory of digital markets where an intermediary provides a platform for firms to advertise their product and where consumers need to engage in costly search if they want to learn about the product characteristics. First, I show that when prices are observable ...

    The Role of Physician-Patient Similarity in Diagnosis and Treatment Decisions: Evidence from Antibiotic Prescribing

    Speaker: Shan Huang, DIW Berlin
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 10:30 - 11:30

    Physicians in primary care provide initial diagnosis and treatment for a diverse set of patients. However, whereas patients are demographically and socio-economically heterogeneous, physicians typically come from affluent and highly-educated backgrounds. As a result, there is often a mismatch between physicians and the community they serve. I investigate the role of patient-physician similarity ...

    GDPR and the Lost Generation of Innovative Apps

    Speaker: Reinhold Kesler, University of Zurich
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time:
    15:15 - 16:15

    Using data on 4.1 million apps at the Google Play Store from 2016 to 2019, we document that GDPR induced the exit of about a third of available apps; and in the quarters following implementation, entry of new apps fell by half. We estimate a structural model of demand and entry in the app market. Comparing long-run equilibria with and without GDPR, we find that GDPR reduces consumer surplus and ...

    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time:

    This paper provides novel empirical results on the welfare impact of sanctions when countries coordinate their sanctions packages. To do so, weconduct simulations with the Caliendo and Parro (2015) CGE model of the world economy that provides changes in welfare under different hypothetical setups of sanctions coalitions. Focusing on the 2012 wave of sanctions against Iran and the 2014 sanctions ...

    Antitrust Policy and Innovation

    Speaker: Giovanni Morzenti, Bocconi University, Milan
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time:
    10:30 - 11:30

    Innovation has recently come to the attention of Antitrust Authorities, even though the effect of mergers on innovation is still hotly debated. I study how the activity of Antitrust Authorities impacts future innovation of merging firms. Exploiting a change in notification rules I build an event study comparing mergers notified to the authorities with non-notified ones. I develop a new methodology ...

    Housing Market and Sentiment Analysis

    Speaker: Konstantin A. Kholodilin, DIW Berlin
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time:
    10:30 - 11:30

    The housing issue is one of the hottest social problems. It is widely debated by the society. These debates contain a large subjective component. In addition, they are expected to correlate with the phases of the housing cycle. One of the most visible and durable manifestationsof these debates are the media items. In this study, we aim at assessing the sentiment of these media publications in ...

    Speaker: Jana Friedrichsen, DIW Berlin and FU Berlin
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time:
    10:30 - 11:30

    Whether pro-social preferences identified in economic laboratory experiments survive in natural market contexts is an important and contested issue. We investigate how fairness in a laboratory experiment framed explicitly as a market exchange relates to preferences for fair trade products elicited before and at the end of the market experiment. We find that the willingness to buy at a higher price ...

    Venture Capital in Diabetes: A Yes to Big Hits, a No to Competition

    Speaker: Jan Málek, DIW Berlin and KU Leuven
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time:
    10:30 - 11:30

    Venture capital (VC) is often seen as an instrumental tool that allows many start-ups to pursue innovation with the potential to shake-up current markets and/or to replace incumbents. Using a highly granular, project-level dataset from preclinical diabetes R&D, this paper shows that VCs actively steer the direction of R&D and streamline activities of research focused firms (pipeline firms) ...
