Editor's Note

Editor's Note Review of Industrial Organization 22: 251, 2003. © 2003 Kluwer Academic Publishers. Printed in the Netherlands. The Review of Industrial Organization is honored to publish this paper by the late Peter Pashigian. It was originally co-authored with Jeanne-Mey Sun and subsequently with Sam Peltzman. Sam Peltzman’s remarks and explanation follow. JK Further Note Peter Pashigian died on October 18, 2000. He joined the faculty of the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business in 1961 and spent his entire academic career there. Peter’s work covered many topics within industrial organization, such as the market for lawyers, the effects of municipal ownership of local transit and the political economy of environmental regulation. However, he had an enduring interest in the organization of retailing. That interest began with his prize-winning dissertation on the distribution of automobiles and ends with this paper on how the value of shopper time affects the management of supermarkets. Peter began work on this paper in the late 1990s with Jeanne-Mey Sun, who was then a graduate student in the Economics Department at the University of Chicago. Upon his death I inherited a draft of the paper and the underlying database. The draft had many rough edges. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Review of Industrial Organization Springer Journals
