R you being foreclosed?

Artboard 17 copy 3Publications

In this publication Dr Oliver Latham and Dr Chara Tzanetaki discuss how the “Susceptible, Infected, Recovered” models used during the pandemic can help understand foreclosing effects in network industries. They develop such a model in an antitrust setting and explain how concepts which are now sadly familiar (R rates, herd immunity, flattening the curve) have their counterparts in technology markets before discussing potential implications for assessing exclusionary theories of harm subject to network effects.
