|Title:||An empirical perspective on auctions |
Porter, Robert H.
|Issue Date:||2006 |
|Series/Report no.:||CSIO working paper 0078|
|Abstract:||We describe the economics literature on auction markets, with an emphasis on the connection between theory, empirical practice, and public policy, and a discussion of outstanding issues. We describe some basic concepts, to highlight some strengths and weaknesses of the literature, and so indicate where further research may be warranted. We discuss identification and estimation issues, with an emphasis on the connection between theory and empirical practice. We also discuss both structural and reduced form empirical approaches.|
