The Digital Economy: Economics, Antitrust and Regulation
on 29 November 2017

Speaker: Professor David Evans (UCL / University of Chicago)
Organised by the  Jevons Institute for Competition Law and Economics and the UCL Centre for Law, Economics & Society

Timings: Registration from 1pm, course starts at 1.30pm and ends at 6pm.

About the course:
The digital economy has grown vast and now reaches almost every aspect of our lives. Whether consumer, business, or regulator we interact with Internet-based businesses constantly. It is also undergoing a massive transformation, with accompanying disruption, as the PC-web-browser centric ecosystem shifts to a mobile-app-centric ecosystem. That transformation has resulted in the “sharing economy,” the “gig-economy”, and the “app-economy” to use some of phrases that dominate today’s conversations.

This course will cover the unique business models followed by Internet-based companies; explore the changes in market structure that has taken place in the last few years as a result of the move to mobile; and consider some of the key competition policy and regulatory issues being debated today.

The course will consist of twelve short segments:

  1. overview;
  2. technological forces;
  3. economic forces;
  4. wires, towers, and physical stuff;
  5. software platforms, APIs, and apps;
  6. economics of free;
  7. ad-support platforms and attention markets;
  8. marketplaces and online retail;
  9. mobile OSs and app stores;
  10. gig and sharing platforms;
  11. privacy and data; and
  12. the great transition from PC/browser to mobile/app. 

Each segment will include an application to competition and regulatory policy for the digital economy using examples from the US, EU, and China.

The course will draw extensively on examples of competition policy cases involving the digital economy from the US, EU, and China and these will be included in each segment.

Who should attend:
The course is mainly designed for professionals familiar with competition policy and sectoral regulation (lawyers, economists, and officials) but should also be informative for anyone who works for, invests in, must interact with digital economy businesses.
