Strong and Weak Links

Sanjeev Goyal

Journal of the European Economic Association, 2005, vol. 3, issue 2-3, 608-616

Abstract: Many of the interesting issues in the economics of networks-information transmission, individual incentives with local externalities, investments in connections, and the structure of complex networks-have to do with the quality of links between individuals entities. However, most of the research to date has assumed a one-zero formulation of connections. I argue that it is possible to write down tractable models of quality of links and that analyzing such models yields fresh insights into these issues.
