Eliot Abrams

I am a PhD candidate in economics at the Booth School of Business. My research uses structural techniques to assess financial market competition.

In my dissertation, I reestimate bank deposit market power. This exercise is necessary because regulators and researchers have historically measured market power assuming that consumers consider every bank available in a given geographic region. The problem is, in practice, consumers only consider a small fraction of banks. See Assessing Bank Deposit Market Power for my solution and results.

I am currently on the job market and will be available for interviews during the 2020 ASSA Annual Meeting in San Diego.
