Virtual Competition Book Description:

Ariel Ezrachi and Maurice Stucke take a hard look at today’s app-assisted paradise of digital shopping. The algorithms and data-crunching that make online purchasing so convenient are also changing the nature of the market by shifting power into the hands of the few, with risks to competition, our democratic ideals, and our overall well-being.

Virtual Competition the Promise and Perils of the Algorithm Driven Economy Book Description:

"A fascinating book about how platform internet companies (Amazon, Facebook, and so on) are changing the norms of economic competition." --Fast Company Shoppers with a bargain-hunting impulse and internet access can find a universe of products at their fingertips. But is there a dark side to internet commerce? This thought-provoking exposé invites us to explore how sophisticated algorithms and data-crunching are changing the nature of market competition, and not always for the better. Introducing into the policy lexicon terms such as algorithmic collusion, behavioral discrimination, and super-platforms, Ariel Ezrachi and Maurice E. Stucke explore the resulting impact on competition, our democratic ideals, our wallets, and our well-being. "We owe the authors our deep gratitude for anticipating and explaining the consequences of living in a world in which black boxes collude and leave no trails behind. They make it clear that in a world of big data and algorithmic pricing, consumers are outgunned and antitrust laws are outdated, especially in the United States." --Science "A convincing argument that there can be a darker side to the growth of digital commerce. The replacement of the invisible hand of competition by the digitized hand of internet commerce can give rise to anticompetitive behavior that the competition authorities are ill equipped to deal with." --Burton G. Malkiel, Wall Street Journal "A convincing case for the need to rethink competition law to cope with algorithmic capitalism's potential for malfeasance." --John Naughton, The Observer

Agile Competitors and Virtual Organizations Book Description:

It is becoming clear today that most of the management truisms that have guided executives and business educators for two generations no longer work. This book, written by three internationally recognized authorities on global competitiveness, is designed to help any business - large or small - come to terms with change and develop effective, profit-centered strategies. Clear, real-world examples are used to describe what it takes for companies and individuals to become "agile" - how they can thrive in a competitive environment of constant, unpredictable change. The book is the product of the authors' extensive research in cooperation with industry and government leaders that resulted in the influential 1991 report, 21st Century Manufacturing Enterprise Strategy. This book presents an updated and expanded vision of agile competition, which promises to affect life in the 21st century as profoundly as mass production-based competition affected life in the 20th century. By focusing on practice rather than on theory, the book describes in detail how this new form of competition is rapidly differentiating winners from losers, not just in the U.S. but around the world.
