History of the concept. Two British economists are credited with having initiated the formal study of externalities, or "spillover effects": Henry Sidgwick (–) is credited with first articulating, and Arthur C. Pigou (–) is credited with formalizing the concept of externalities. The word externality is used because the effect produced on others, whether in the form of. somewhat more pronounced. Telecommunications is a little different because of the existence of network externalities, a phenomenon that increases the value of a service with increase in the number of users. Kim et al. (), demonstrates this phenomenon in their analysis of online service competition. Network industries play a crucial role in modern life. The modern economy would be very much diminished without the transportation, communications, information, and railroad networks. This chapter will analyze the major economic features of networks. In the course of the analysis it will become clear that many important non-network indus-. Economic Analysis of the Digital Economy explores the economic impact of digitization, with each chapter identifying a promising new area of research. The Internet is one of the key drivers of growth in digital communication, and the first set of chapters discusses basic supply-and-demand factors related to .

The European Commission's recommendation has been heavily influenced by a recent body of economic literature which highlights the two-sided nature of mobile interconnection markets, and the significant role that "network effects", "receiver benefits" and "call externalities" play in the analysis of competition, pricing, and entry in these. Journal of Economic Literature, Vol. XXXVI (September ) ates the need to produce at discrete points in space because of increasing returns to scale in production (David Star'rett ). Because of these perva-sive externalities and nonconvexities, economic analysis when applied to ur-ban geography yields results that differ.

Finally, the spatial analysis shows that in the aggregate economy and also in some sectors there is the presence of spatial autocorrelation and therefore dynamic spatial models have been estimated.

Social network analysis (SNA) is the process of investigating social structures through the use of networks and graph theory. It characterizes networked structures in terms of nodes (individual actors, people, or things within the network) and the ties, edges, or links (relationships or interactions) that connect them.

Examples of social structures commonly visualized through social network. Downloadable. Telecommunication industry has probably the highest level of direct network effects. Direct externalities are related to the number of consumers using the same service, and indirect externalities stem from the availability of supporting services.

Apart from network externalities, in telecommunication call externalities also exist when user of one network benefits from receiving. In an emerging global economy the ability of the telecommunications sector to provide an internationally competitive network for transferring information has significant implications for trade and economic growth.

Because of recent large world‐wide investments in telecommunications infrastructure, quantifying the impact of telecommunications in economic growth has received. The Language of Spatial Analysis is designed as an interactive workbook that allows you to create and add your own sample questions of spatial analysis (from your industry or domain expertise), which can add to your vocabulary when explaining spatial analysis to others.

Abstract. Development is accompanied by significant spatial transformations—changes in the distribution of people and economic activities. The World Development Report Reshaping Economic Geography draws lessons from history and academic research to develop a concise framework for understanding these dynamics.

This framework makes rigorous spatial policy analysis tractable. The book introduces network theory to the study of the economics and law of telecommunications. The discussion opens up the black box of the cost function in telecommunications. The analysis also goes beyond the "network externalities" approach that focuses primarily on the size of s: 1.

Overall, there seems to be larger growth effects from telecommunication development in developing countries than in developed countries, a result that contradicts earlier findings and the notion of network externalities.The topic of economic convergence is still crucial in the European Union (EU) as promoting regional growth and the reduction of disparities remains a key objective.

In this paper we investigate development and economic growth across EU regions. Particular attention is given to σ-convergence and β-convergence. These analyses are carried out for regional units corresponding to the.
