Özet

The main subject of this paper is to explain and investigate the results and structure of the competition between two networks. The article proceeds in the following manner. First, it briefly reviews the literature regarding alignment, new economy, network externality and networks. Second we set up a simple model to explain competition between two networks. As a result of this competition one of the networks can be winner. But in new economy "winner takes all" rule works. If the winner network reaches to critical mass, the value of his/her good increases for customers. Because of lock-in effects, network competition can be finished by monopoly or dominant network. In other words network competition promotes monopoly. This result is convenient with previous academic studies. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
