Retailers co-locate with rivals in order to take advantage of economies of agglomeration when consumers have limited information and engage in costly search, even though co-location implies fiercer price competi- tion. We estiamte a structural model of consumer search for spatially differentiated products using rich data on new car transactions. We use the model to separately disentangle the competition and agglomeration effects of retail co-location by simulating retail closures. A full infor- ...

Approximate linear programs (ALPs) are well-known models for computing value function approximations (VFAs) of intractable Markov decision processes (MDPs). VFAs from ALPs have desirable theoretical properties, define an operating policy, and provide a lower bound on the optimal policy cost. However, solving ALPs near-optimally remains challenging, for example, when approximating MDPs with nonlinear cost functions and transition dynamics or when rich basis functions are required to obtain a good...

This paper uses the health care industry as a novel laboratory in which to study a firm's strategic use of debt to enhance its bargaining power during negotiations with non-financial stakeholders. I show that reimbursement rates negotiated between a hospital and insurers for a specific procedure are higher when the hospital has more debt. I show that this effect is stronger when hospitals have less bargaining power relative to insurers ex ante. The contribution of this paper is to provide direct...
