    Description

    Digitalization has changed the way business are run nowadays and how they will be run in the future. Differences may lie in consumer behavior, fi rm behavior, and in the modes of competition. We discuss models of several digital markets in order to highlight characteristic properties, derive optimal strategies, and eventually discuss the welfare properties. Topics include
    price comparison sites, online advertising, recommender systems, and open source software. The main focus is laid on different roles of market intermediaries in the digital economy.
