Standards, Platforms and Network Effects
Whitepapers & Research
In his research, Moenius is interested in how domestic and international institutions affect international trade. Besides the effect of legal institutions on trade, he has written several papers on the effects of technical standards on trade flows and the dynamics of comparative advantage, for which he visualized his results in an online atlas using Geographic Information Systems (GIS). He recently applied GIS to the analysis of the housing market in Southern California. He has also worked on the dynamics of network effects in platform technologies and competition between political parties. He has presented his work in more than 70 talks that he gave at universities, conferences, and government institutions. His work appeared, amongst others in The Review of Economics and Statistics, Japan and the World Economy, and the International Journal of Industrial Organization.
