This article is based on my PhD thesis at the London School of Economics. A longer version circulated under the title “Inferring Conduct under the Threat of Entry.” I am very grateful to Peter Davis and John Sutton for their valuable advice. I thank Fernanda Lima, Cristian Huse, Thomas Buettner and Bernardo Guimarães for their encouragement. I also thank Judy Chevalier, Allan Collard-Wexler, Ken Corts, George Deltas, Igal Hendel, Tom Hubbard, Mike Mazzeo, Aviv Nevo, Rob Porter, David Prentice, Margaret Slade, Scott Stern, Andrew Sweeting, and Tommaso Valletti, as well as numerous seminar participants, for comments. In particular, I thank Mark Roberts for his discussion at the 2007 NBER I.O. Summer Institute in Boston, Yongbae Lee for superb research assistance, and the editor, Ariel Pakes, and anonymous referees for making this a better article. Financial support from CAPES and from the LSE, and the provision of research facilities by STICERD, are gratefully acknowledged. An earlier version received an award from the Brazilian Antitrust Authorities in 2007. A separate online appendix, detailing the sources and treatment of the data used, and presenting further robustness checks, is available from the author's website. The usual disclaimer applies.
