Title: “Horizontal Mergers on Platform Markets: Cost Savings vs. Two-Sided Network Effects?” (with Edmond Baranes and Thomas Cortade, U. Montpellier)


Abstract: We study horizontal mergers on two-sided markets between horizontally differentiated platforms. We provide a theoretical analysis of the merger’s consequences (prices, profits and welfare) based on the amount of cost savings it generates, the behavior of outsider platforms, and the intensity of two-sided network effects. We point out differences as compared with the standard, one-sided merger analysis, and also discuss the merger policy implications.
