Three Stanford Digital Economy Lab digital fellows have received a 2021 Antitrust Writing Award for their working paper titled “Digital Platforms and Antitrust.”
The digital fellows, Geoffrey Parker, Georgios Petropoulos, and Marshall Van Alstyne, were recognized as authors of the best academic paper written in the Digital category.
Organized by Concurrences and The George Washington University Law School’s Competition Law Center, the Antitrust Writing Awards celebrate the best in antitrust writing across a spectrum of categories, including mergers, intellectual property, and procedure.
Georgios is a post-doctoral researcher at MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy and a research fellow at Bruegel, an economics think tank based in Brussels. His research focuses on digital platforms, competition policy, and the implications of new technologies on labor markets.
Marshall is one of the leading experts in network business models. As co-developer of the concept of “two-sided networks,” he has been a major contributor to the theory of network effects, a set of ideas now taught worldwide.
Geoff has made significant contributions to the field of network economics and strategy as co-developer of the theory of “two-sided” markets. He is also co-author (with Marshall Van Alstyne) of the book, Platform Revolution.
Parker, Petropoulos, and Van Alstyne discuss the EU Digital Markets Act, legislation that seeks to reign in the power of big tech companies like Amazon, Apple, and Google.
