Welcome to the Chair of Microeconomics
We analyze strategic interaction and collective decisions
Our research develops and applies theoretical methods of microeconomics such as game theory, social choice theory and industrial organization. We are concerned with imperfect competition as well as political decision processes. What are, e.g., the consequence of different voting rules on the balance of power in EU institutions or corporate boards? How are legal requirements to be operationalized in order to allocate damage payments of former cartel members in a sensible way? How does redistribution interact with private investment incentives in the presence of capital market imperfections?
