Speaking of inter-firm networks...
I am a post-doc fellow at Hines VA and Northwestern hospitals, and a new
project has led me to the question below. I have enjoyed being a member of
socnet for a while now, but I cannot seem to find anything in my files or
the archives that answers the following question:

Has anyone conducted a study where the ties in a social network represent
the competition between firms, industries, hospitals, etc.?

Thank you,
