The Rise of Mega-Firms: Facts, Explanations, and Policies

Grant Year: 2019

John Van Reenen and Chad Syverson will lead an effort to examine how the rise of larger firms and increasing levels of market concentration affect key economic measures, including employment, investment, and output. They will commission research to explore the causes of, consequences of, and potential remedies for increased firm size and market concentration. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers.
