UCL Centre for Law, Economics & Society

Multi-Sided Platforms: Business, Economics & Competition Policy
Speaker: Professor David Evans (UCL / University of Chicago)
Who should attend:
About the course:
All of the
“sharing-economy” firms, such as Uber, Airbnb, and BlaBlaCar, many of
the biggest companies in the world, including Apple, Google, Facebook,
and Microsoft, and many of the firms that lead the online economy are
matchmakers. These businesses all operate physical or virtual platforms
where they connect members of one group of customers, like people
looking for a ride, with another group of companies, like drivers.
Economists call them “multi-sided platforms” and have developed a new
body of economics that explains how they work and why they are different
from traditional firms.
