The purpose of this thesis is to analyse how regulatory interventions in the market for pharmaceuticals can affect agents' decisions and market outcomes. The work is organized in four main chapters. The first chapter is theoretical and analyses firms' dynamic pricing under a Reference Pricing Scheme. In a new theoretical setting, we explore whether and why competition among firms' works, pointing out the role of the scheme in facilitating any collusive behavior.
