Welcome to Richard Friberg's homepage

I am the Jacob Wallenberg Professor at the Stockholm School of Economics. My research focuses on imperfectly competitive markets (Industrial Organization) with an emphasis on investigating responses by firms to uncertainty and various risks, in particular exchange rate risk. I teach microeconomics at the undergraduate level and Industrial Organization at the PhD level. I am also affiliated (Professor II) with NHH in Bergen. A CV is available here.

My book "Managing Risk and Uncertainty" is especially close to my heart. Much of my other work is available for downloading here.

Some recent work:
