As many developing countries see dozens of nearly identical micro-entrepreneurs and products concentrated in the same areas, this project tests for the existence of social institutions that pressure business owners to share total demand and evidence of collusive price-setting behaviour, using a simulated market competition with actual micro-entrepreneurs.
