The late B. Peter Pashigian spent
more than 30 years at Chicago GSB, studying the way industries organize
and operate and teaching courses in microeconomics, applied price
theory, industrial organization, and government regulation.
Pashigian authored three books--The Distribution of Automobiles:
An Economic Analysis of the Franchise System (Prentice-Hall,

of pollution regulations. In the 1980s, he wrote "The Political
