Competitor Information and Firm Strategy: A Field Experiment on Yelp

Abstract: I explore the impact of increased competitor information on the strategic choices of firms. I run a field experiment in collaboration with Yelp across ~3,000 nail salons in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, and analyze how information on competitor prices shapes their decisions and performance.
