  • Games with unobservable heterogeneity and multiple equilibria: an application to mobile telecommunications 

    Marcoux, Mathieu (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2019-02)
    To shed light on the limited success of competition enhancing policies in mobile telecommunications, I estimate a game of transceivers’ locations between national incumbents and a new entrant in Canada. I recover player-specific unobserved heterogeneity ...
  • How do disruptions in the mortgage market affect consumption? Empirical evidence from the U.S.

    Cette thèse est organisée en trois chapitres où sont développées des méthodes d’analyse économique et économétrique des marchés de l’énergie. Le Chapitre 1 propose une étude des incitations à la manipulation de marché générées par des opportunités ...
  • Sharp test for equilibrium uniqueness in discrete games with a flexible information structure 

    Marcoux, Mathieu (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2018-12)
    I propose a test for an assumption commonly maintained when estimating static discrete games of incomplete information, i.e. the assumption of equilibrium uniqueness in the data generating process. The test is appealing for several reasons. It allows ...
  • Random consideration and choice: A case study of «default» options 

    Horan, Sean (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2018-11)
    A growing number of stochastic choice models include a “default” option for situations where the decision maker selects none of the feasible alternatives. While this is a welcome development, these models also present an empirical challenge - since the ...
  • Threshold Luce rules 

    Horan, Sean (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2018-11)
    In the late 1950’s, Luce proposed two different theories of imperfect utility discrimination that have had a lasting impact on economics. One model (1956) gave rise to the literature on just noticeable differences while the other (1959) laid the ...
  • Dynamic refugee matching 

    Andersson, Tommy; Ehlers, Lars; Martinello, Alessandro (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2018-10)
    Asylum seekers are often assigned to localities upon arrival using uninformed matching systems, which lead to inefficient and unfair allocations. This paper proposes an informed dynamic mechanism as an intuitive and easy-to-implement alternative. Our ...
  • Belief-weighted Nash aggregation of Savage preferences 

    Sprumont, Yves (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2018-09)
    The 'belief-weighted Nash social welfare functions' are methods for aggregating Savage preferences defined over a set of acts. Each such method works as follows. Fix a 0-normalized subjective expected utility representation of every possible preference ...
  • Innovation growth clusters : Lessons from the industrial revolution 

    Dudley, Leonard; Rauh, Christopher (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2018-08)
    Over three centuries ago, a new technology suddenly increased the amount and frequency of available information. Might such «Big Data» have disrupted the causal relationships linking economic growth and innovation? Previous research has affirmed that ...
