Advertising, Market transitions

The theory of newspaper woes

Screen-Shot-2013-09-17-at-2.07.35-PMSusan Athey, Emilio Calvano and myself finally released our NBER working paper this week on the impact of the Internet on the news media. Having chatted with a journalist trying to decode our maths — which by the way was critical in developing our theory — I thought I’d link here to some more readable treatments.

First of all, this is all covered in one of the chapters of my book, Information Wants to be Shared.

Second, there are some blog posts here on tracking, on Facebook, on paywalls, and the problems of advertising in general here and here.
