THE PRICE OF A PILL: GAME THEORY AND THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY | WITH OLIVER VIEHMANN
September 14, 2021
September 14, 2021
In this episode, we talk to Oliver Viehmann, Principal at TWS Partners, and explore the application of game theory to pricing strategies and negotiations in the highly regulated pharmaceutical industry. We discuss how pharmaceutical companies engage with regulators across the world to determine drug prices using two broad mechanisms: regulatory cost-effectiveness pricing and competitive procurement mechanisms (e.g. contracting or tendering). With reference to the highly publicized "Volume Based Procurement" program in China, we delve into the game theoretic complexities and challenges for both payers, who create auction designs, and manufacturers, who compete to win contracts. Oliver Viehmann is Principal at TWS Partners and supports clients in the pharmaceutical sector, in addition to a range of other industries.

HOW TO PREDICT EMERGING MARKET POWER USING GAME THEORY | WITH PHILIPP HELLER
August 03, 2021
August 03, 2021
In this episode we talk to Philipp Heller, expert on mergers, antitrust and competition to elaborate on why game theory is relevant to merger analysis. We discuss how game theory can help predict effects of market consolidations for some of the most prominent examples in recent years. While the intended merger of Vonovia and its largest rival Deutsche Wohnen, which would have formed the largest residential-property company in the whole of Europe, was recently rejected by shareholders, the German Federal Cartel Office (FCO) gave its blessing to the transaction. We explain some ideas from game theory that are useful for antitrust authorities like the FCO when analysing this and other mergers. Philipp Heller is an Associate Director at NERA Economic Consulting. There he has focused on topics such as cartel damages litigation, national and international merger notifications, and regulatory procedures. Previously Philipp completed his PhD in Economics at Humboldt University of Berlin.
