We develop a framework, extending the conventional duopoly model by replacing the Hotelling line with a simplex in high???dimension spaces, to study the competition and access regulation of multiple networks. We first characterize the competitive equilibrium when the substitutabilities of the networks are not too high, or the access charges are nearly cost???based. We then analyse how the equilibrium market shares respond to marginal variations in the access charges under various regimes of access regulation, and thereby examine the efficiency implications of such regulation regimes. In particular, we analyze the asymmetric ...
(to sell)) exists when a specific individual or an enterprise has sufficient control over a particular product or service to determine significantly the terms on which other individuals shall have access to it.

Truth Addict: Robin Hahnel: What Is To Be Done? The Economics of ...
What should we do if we have the opportunity to start over again? We could hold a lottery – or perhaps have a brawl – to decide who owns what productive resources. The unfortunate losers would have to hire themselves out to work for the more fortunate winners, and the goods the losers produced could then be “freely” exchanged by their owners – the people who didn’t produce them. Of course this is the capitalist “solution” to the economic problem which has been spreading its sway for roughly three centuries and now stands triumphant. Alternatively, we could make the best educated – or perhaps most ruthless among us – responsible ... market research, surveys and trends
