    Additional Comments:  I consider dynamic models of firm entry, and ask how do aggregate outcomes in markets change as a response to firms’ entry decisions? For example, how does pollution change in response to different airlines entry? I develop a Marginal Treatment Effect framework to answer these questions, while maintaining an economically meaningful dynamic model of firm entry. I consider how to implement Marginal Policy Treatment Effects in this setting, and discuss how to apply existing dynamic discrete choice estimators to estimate effects.
