We develop and apply economic models to understand competition and
strategy in communications industries, primarily the mass media.
Among others, we study cable and broadcast television, Internet
content distribution, print media,
and the movie industry.

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.
