Abstract

This paper discusses digital ecosystems. It first describes the common properties of business ecosystems and the idiosyncrasies of digital ecosystems. It then explains how dynamic capabilities provide a good understanding of ecosystem competition. It closes by exploring how a dynamic capabilities/competition-minded antitrust policy would look like. The paper was prepared for for the OECD hearing on Competition Economics of Digital Ecosystems (3 December 2020).
