Efficient networks for a class of games with global spillovers
AbstractIn this paper we characterize efficient networks for network formation games with global spillovers, that satisfy convexity and sub-modularity properties. This allows us to complete the work of Goyal and Joshi (2006) and Westbrock on collaborative oligopoly networks. In particular, we establish that efficient networks are nested split graphs in this class of games.
