    Network(ed) Economy

    The new economy is driven by dramatic changes in information and communication technologies — the computer, telecommunication technologies, the internet. These technologies, which are being integrated into every facet of the economy and society, are inherently network technologies. The Network(ed) Economy is master level course providing students with micro-economics of networks, and the effects on the economy of the widespread diffusion of network technologies. Specific topics include the nature and scope of network externalities; the need for standards (both technical and cultural) and the nature of the standardisation process; path dependence; technological lock-in and escaping from lock-in; potential regret; issues in pricing the use of network technologies; the effects of different network architectures such as small worlds on economic performance. As virtual networks, or social networks form a more important aspect of economic life: companies have to address their own networks of suppliers crating long-lasting non-market relationships. The new economy depends on networks in many different ways, and this course aims to understand both networks per se, and networks as supporting different types of economic activity. Student will have better understanding issues relating network technologies and business strategies, effects of network technologies on competition and competition policy, as well as regulatory challenges associated with network(ed) economy.
