In this paper, we consider the empirical problem of estimating the underlying profit function of firms from “revealed choice” data on entry in a cross-section of oligopoly markets. One problem faced in the earlier literature is the problem of multiple equilibrium, which makes traditional maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) techniques difficult to implement. The problem of multiple equilibria is serious enough that Sutton (2000), for example, suggests giving up on parameter estimation in the… CONTINUE READING
