Telecommunications | Economics of Communications Industries
T421 | 26653 | Waterman, D.


We develop and apply economic models to understand competition and
strategy in communications industries, primarily the mass media.
Among others, we study broadcast, cable and other multi-channel
television, print media, the movie industry, and Internet-based
information/entertainment media.

The course has two objectives.  The main one is to provide you with
a foundation for evaluating alternative business strategies of
communications firms.  The other is to provide you with a method for
evaluating public policy issues in these industries.
