Cost Pass-Through with Network Externalities

We analyze the rate at which cost shocks are passed through to prices when the market exhibits network externalities. We find that the pass-through rate is smaller in the presence of network externalities. Also, the deadweight loss created by a cost shock is smaller in a network market.
