Many of today’s preeminent technology firms are “platforms,” providing new ways for buyers, sellers, and more generally, users, to connect. Digital business models are an increasingly important part of the worldwide economy. Professor Susan Athey will explain the underlying economics of multi-sided markets and the unique competitive dynamics at play among platforms. In addition, Professor Athey will discuss how these economic concepts can inform legal arguments and raise legal issues.
