This lecture, PowerPoint slide show, and Stata ado-file offer an introduction to price discrimination, with an emphasis on third-degree price discrimination. Graphical intuition and mathematical analysis make this lecture appropriate both for undergraduate and graduate students. After explaining the functioning of a simple monopoly, and discussing first and second-degree price discrimination, the lecture deals with third-degree price discrimination. Everyday examples, graphics, and a mathematical treatment are offered. The lecture and the accompanying PowerPoint slide show should take about 90 minutes to go through.
