Networks: An Economic Perspective

    We discuss social network analysis from the perspective of economics. 
We organize the presentaion around the theme of externalities: the effects 
that one's behavior has on others' well-being. Externalities underlie the 
interdependencies that make networks interesting. We discuss network 
formation, as well as interactions between peoples' behaviors within a 
given network, and the implications in a variety of settings. Finally, we 
highlight some empirical challenges inherent in the statistical analysis 
of network-based data.

Parag Khanna on The Global Connectivity Revolution ˙˙ RSA

The Global Connectivity Revolution with strategist and author Parag Khanna. We're accelerating into a future shaped less by countries and more by mega-cities; less by borders and more by connectivity. It is time to reimagine how life is organised on Earth. Leading strategist Parag Khanna shows how the global connectivity revolution - in transport, infrastructure, communications - has upended the ˙˙geography is destiny˙˙ mantra, and how connectivity, not sovereignty, has become the organising principle of 21st century society.
