Professor Pakes’ research has been in Industrial Organization, the Economics of Technological Change and in Econometric Theory. He and his co-authors have recently focused on developing techniques which allow us to empirically analyze market responses to policy and environmental changes. This includes theoretical work on how to estimate demand and cost systems and then use the estimated parameters to analyze equilibrium responses in different institutional settings, empirical work which uses these techniques to analyze market outcomes in different industries, and the development of a framework for the applied analysis of dynamic oligopolies (with and without collusive possibilities). 24
