Abstract: The thesis has three self-contained chapters each contributing to a different topic in microeconomics. In the main chapter of the thesis, I revisit the well-known problem of price discrimination in the light of the recent rise of online tracking technologies. In an environment where consumers search for the offers of competing sellers sequentially, the ability of sellers to condition their offers on a consumer's search history has radical implications for equilibrium search behavior and prices, sometimes leading to a reversal of the theoretical predictions obtained from existing models of price discrimination. Under what conditions and why tracking of search histories is beneficial or detrimental for consumers, sellers and overall welfare are the main questions addressed in this chapter.
