- DescriptionThe Oxford Handbook of the Ecomics of Networks represents the frontier of research into how and why networks they form, how they influence behavior, how they help govern outcomes in an interactive world, and how they shape collective decision making, opinion formation, and diffusion dynamics. From a methodological perspective, the contributors to this volume devote attention to theory, field experiments, laboratory experiments, and ecometrics. Theoretical work in network formation, games played on networks, repeated games, and the interaction between linking and behavior is synthesized. A number of chapters are devoted to studying social process mediated by networks. Topics here include opinion formation, diffusion of information and disease, and learning. There are also chapters devoted to financial contagion and systemic risk, motivated in part by the recent financial crises. Ather section discusses communities, with applications including social trust, favor exchange, and social collateral; the importance of communities for migration patterns; and the role that networks and communities play in the labor market. A prominent role of networks, from an ecomic perspective, is that they mediate trade. Several chapters cover bilateral trade in networks, strategic intermediation, and the role of networks in international trade. Contributions discuss as well the role of networks for organizations. On the one hand, one chapter discusses the role of networks for the performance of organizations, while two other chapters discuss managing networks of consumers and pricing in the presence of network-based spillovers. Finally, the authors discuss the internet as a network with attention to the issue of net neutrality.

He currently works on the interaction between markets and networks, a project for which he obtained an ERC consolidator grant in 2014, on strategic interaction and networks, altruism in networks, and the econometrics of social networks. Andrea Galeotti is Professor of Economics at the European University Institute and University of Essex. He is a leading international scholar in the study of social and economic networks.

His research is broadly in microeconomic theory and game theory, with a particular emphasis on the role of networks and social interactions in strategic models. Recent work includes incorporating incentives into epidemiological diffusion models, as well as understanding the coevolution of partner choices and repeated play in social models of games.
