    An excellent example of this kind of work can be found in Ellison & Ellison's Econometrica Paper, Search, Obfuscation, and Price Elasticities on the Internet. They proceed by estimating the firm's demand function econometrically (rather than via the heuristic method described above), and then calculate the implied PED from this estimated.

    Search, search engines and recommendation systems Perhaps the oldest and largest stream of research on the Internet and market frictions emphasizes reduced search costs. This literature builds on an older theory literature in economics [24] [25] [26] that examines how search costs affect prices.

2 Theory of price search engines; search and obfuscation Any model of price search engines must avoid two possible contradictions. The first is the Bertrand paradox. A price search engine that caused all retailers to go out of business would be of little use.

The rst is the Bertrand paradox. A price search engine that caused all retailers to go out of business. Retailers, though, engage in obfuscation—practices that frustrate consumer search or make it less damaging to firms—resulting in much less price sensitivity on some other products.

We discuss several models of obfuscation and examine its effects on demand and markups empirically. Search, obfuscation, and price elasticities on the Internet.

Search, obfuscation, and price elasticities on the Internet. [Glenn Ellison; Sara Fisher Ellison; National Bureau of Economic Research.]. Despite the interest in measuring price sensitivity of online consumers, most academic work on Internet commerce is hindered by a lack of data on quantity.

In this paper we use publicly available data on the sales ranks of ab books to derive quantity proxies at the two leading online booksellers. Matching this information to prices, we can directly estimate the elasticities of demand.

Very few book buyers currently use price search engines, so one would not expect the aggregate demand bookstores face to be highly elastic. 2 Theory of price search engines; search and obfuscation Any model of price search engines must avoid two possible contradictions.
