Various teaching links

Some teaching cases taken from this month's CEP Centrepiece magazine.

1. Selling UK citizenship.  We will learn about how markets allocate according to willingness to pay. Here's a proposal to allocate citizenship this way.

2. Complementary goods. If you ban YouTube videos, you might cause sales of music to fall if there are inter-related demands.  Exactly this happens. 

3. Productivity spillovers.  How wikipedia content spills over to benefit others.
