Market Organisation and Trading Relationships
This paper analyses the evolution of trading relationships in a market in which trades take place bilaterally. Buyers reinforce their probability of visiting sellers as a function of the profitability of their past experience. Using the "mean field" approach it is shown that two distant types of behaviour "loyalist" and "shopper" emerge and that the transition from one to the other is abrupt. These results are confirmed by simulations of more complicated versions of the model.
