Description: A collection of information on economic issues of networks, such as the Internet, telephone and fax communications networks, railroads etc. One of the fundamental features of networks is that the value of a network service increases as the network expands, that is, networks exhibit network externalities. For example, connecting to a telephone network with more subscribers is more desirable than connecting to a smaller network. This property of networks has important implications, many of them discussed here.
