Course Overview

Social networks have profound effects on individuals’ behavior and economic outcomes. They are critical for the trade of goods and services. They influence our opinions, which products we buy, how much education we obtain. They shape our political attitudes and our likelihood of succeeding professionally. They are important in determining how diseases spread and they are essential to understanding the optimal design of organisations and the optimal design of policies based on peer effects. These premises, which find empirical support in a variety of studies, are the motivation for this course. The course provides an overview of the theoretical work that has been developed in the economic of networks and some of its applications.

ECTS points: 0,5.
