    Robert F. Lanzillotti Prize for Assistant Professor Alex MacKay
    May 17, 2022
    The Robert F. Lanzillotti Prize for the best paper in antitrust economics is presented at the International Industrial Organization Conference (IIOC), annually. The IIOC is one of the most high-profile conferences in the field of industrial organization. Assistant Professor Alex MacKay and colleagues from Georgetown and DICE were honored this year for their paper, "Rising Markups and the Role of Consumer Preferences." The paper shows that companies in the consumer-packaged goods industry in the U.S. significantly increased their market power between 2006 and 2019, increasing their price-cost margins by more than 30% on average. The main reasons for this increase are that consumers are less responsive to price changes over time, and falling production costs have only been passed on to consumers to a small extent.
