Abstract: This dissertation consists of three self-contained chapters. The common theme is the analysis of the role that endogenous and strategic participation decisions play forming market structure and the design of regulatory policy that takes such responses into account. The first two chapters are concerned with the effects of vertical restraints in the entry and brand positioning by dealerships in the car retail industry. In Chapter 1, I look at the effects of exclusive dealing and analyze whether car manufacturers use exclusivity with foreclosing motives. In Chapter 2, I explore the consequences of allowing for territorial protections in the formation of retail networks. The third part of this dissertation is co-authored with Hidenori Takahashi and Yuya Takahashi. In Chapter 3, we study participation decisions in the procurement of public infrastructure project. We analyze the role that information about potential entry has coordinating entry among firms.
