Competition and Price Discrimination in the Parking Garage Industry, with Yijia Wang

2014, forthcoming Journal of Industrial Economics

Haizhen Lin, Yija Wang


This paper provides an empirical examination of the relationship between competition and price discrimination in the parking garage industry. We find the degree of price schedule curvature decreases with competition, implying a greater proportional drop in low-end prices than in high-end prices. We explain this result by differences in searching behaviors between short-term and long-term customers.
