The Web Economy: Goods, Users, Models, and Policies surveys the landscape of the web ecosystem from several angles. It begins by defining the component parts of the ecosystem, digital and web goods, and proceeds to discuss users and producers on the web, formal economic models of the ecosystem, and issues in the regulation of the web. It concludes by looking at the role that information and communications technology in general and on the web in particular can play in economic development.
