Various teaching links

  1. Wise words on the need for increased captial requirements and whether they will stiffle growth from Howard Davies
  2. Very nice case study of two-sided markets in the music industry and how record companies don't get it from Prospect magazine. In the lecture on demand we studied how demand might be affected by a network: in this case, demand for one good (in this case live music) is affected by demand for another good (in this case recorded music).
  3. A really bad tax idea: taxing you as you get a suntan. This from Tim Taylor.
