Industrial Economics is a very interesting field. Technical, yes, but full of important insights on competition and economic behavior.
Tacit Collusion under Imperfect Monitoring in the Canadian Manufacturing Industry – Applied Economics (2015)
The evidence provides weak support for optimal collusion in one industry, which is consistent with the idea that such collusive arrangements are unusual.
The empirical evidence is partially consistent with a multiplier effect where synergetic factors prevail by exit inducing exit. Evidence partially supports a competition effect that could be related to a selection process favoring efficiency, as exit induces entry.
Complementarity of Innovation Policies – International Journal of Production Economics (2014)

Evidence is suggestive and favors the adoption of more targeted incentive policies for innovation.
