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. Networks: An Economic Perspective Matthew O. Jackson, Brian W.

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.
