The Economics of the Popular Music Industry

This Palgrave Pivot uses modeling from microeconomic theory and industrial organization to demonstrate how consumers and producers have responded to major changes in the music industry. Byun examines the important role of technology in changing its structure, particularly as new methods of creating and accessing music prove to be a double-edged sword for creators and producers. An underlying theme in the project is the question of how the business of music affects creativity, and how artists continue to produce creative output in the face of business pressures, the erosion of copyright enforcement, and rampant online piracy. In addition to being a useful resource for economists interested in the music industry, this approachable Pivot is also ideal for business and music majors studying the effect of technology on their chosen fields.

This book examines why game theory has become such a popular tool of analysis. It investigates the deficiencies in this methodology and goes on to consider whether its popularity will fade or remain an important tool for economists. The book provides the reader with some basic concepts from noncooperative theory, and then goes on to explore the strengths, weaknesses, and future of the theory as a tool of economic modelling and analysis. All those interested in the applications of game theory to economics, from undergraduates to academics will find this study of particular value.

Ît then rigorously analyses each model in the tradition of microeconomic theory, leading to a richer, more realistic picture of consumer behavior. Ran Spiegler analyses phenomena such as exploitative price plans in the credit market, complexity of financial products and other obfuscation practices, consumer antagonism to unexpected price increases, and the role of default options in consumer decision making. Spiegler unifies the relevant literature into three main strands: limited ability to anticipate and control future choices, limited ability to understand complex market environments, and sensitivity to reference points. Although the challenge of enriching the psychology of decision makers in economic models has been at the frontier of theoretical research in the last decade, there has been no graduate-level, theory-oriented textbook to cover developments in the last 10-15 years.

This book offers a concise, rigorous presentation of the economic fundamentals of the music industry in particular and the music economy in general. It highlights the economic principles that govern the music business as an economic good protected by copyright law. The book examines the core sectors of the industry - music publishing, sound recording, the live music market, and secondary markets such as advertising and merchandising - and shows how they operate together. It includes analysis of the income streams of musicians and the wider music lobby. The impact of digitization and the economic relevance of new digital formats is given special attention - download services, streaming platforms, mobile music providers, cloud music services as well as music recognition and recommendation systems are all discussed. The book shows how a combination of established publishers (Universal, Sony/ATV, Warner/Chappell), new promoters (LiveNation), and a new generation of music providers (Apple, Google, Amazon) has created a heady mix of competing and collaborative economic models. Throw in the problem of piracy and ever-changing consumer behavior and, the author shows, we have one of the most dynamic and fascinating business sectors in the world.

Rigorously analytical andfilled with exercises coded to indicate level of difficulty, it provides a unified and moderntreatment of the field with accessible models that are simplified to highlight robust economic ideaswhile working at an intuitive level.To aid students at different levels, each chapter is dividedinto a main text and supplementary section containing more advanced material. Each chapter openswith elementary models and builds on this base to incorporate current research in a coherentsynthesis.Tirole begins with a background discussion of the theory of the firm. In part I hedevelops the modern theory of monopoly, addressing single product and multi product pricing, staticand intertemporal price discrimination, quality choice, reputation, and vertical restraints.In partII, Tirole takes up strategic interaction between firms, starting with a novel treatment of theBertrand-Cournot interdependent pricing problem. He studies how capacity constraints, repeatedinteraction, product positioning, advertising, and asymmetric information affect competition ortacit collusion. He then develops topics having to do with long term competition, including barriersto entry, contestability, exit, and research and development. He concludes with a "game theoryuser's manual" and a section of review exercises.Jean Tirole is a Professor of Economics atMIT

Why did jazz become a dominant popular music genre in the 1920s and rock 'n' roll in the 1950s? Why did heavy metal, punk rock and hiphop find their way from sub-cultures to the established music industry? What are the effects of new communication technologies and the Internet on the creation of music in the early 21st century? These and other questions are answered by Peter Tschmuck through an integrated model of creativity and innovation that is based on an international history of music industry since Thomas A. Edison invented the phonograph in 1877. Thus, the history of the music industry is described in full detail. By discussing the historic process of music production, distribution and reception the author highlights several revolutions in the music industry that were caused by the inference of aesthetic, technological, legal, economic, social and political processes of change. On the basis of an integrated model of creativity and innovation, an explanation is given on how the processes and structures of the present music industry will be altered by the ongoing digital revolution, which totally changed the value-added network of the production, dissemination and use of music. For the second edition, the author has reworked chapter 9 in order to include all the developments which shaped the music industry in the first decade of the 21st century – from Napster to cloud-based music services and even beyond.

Game Theory for Applied Economists

Game Theory for Applied Economists Author Robert Gibbons

This book introduces one of the most powerful tools of modern economics to a wide audience: those who will later construct or consume game-theoretic models. Robert Gibbons addresses scholars in applied fields within economics who want a serious and thorough discussion of game theory but who may have found other works overly abstract. Gibbons emphasizes the economic applications of the theory at least as much as the pure theory itself; formal arguments about abstract games play a minor role. The applications illustrate the process of model building--of translating an informal description of a multi-person decision situation into a formal game-theoretic problem to be analyzed. Also, the variety of applications shows that similar issues arise in different areas of economics, and that the same game-theoretic tools can be applied in each setting. In order to emphasize the broad potential scope of the theory, conventional applications from industrial organization have been largely replaced by applications from labor, macro, and other applied fields in economics. The book covers four classes of games, and four corresponding notions of equilibrium: static games of complete information and Nash equilibrium, dynamic games of complete information and subgame-perfect Nash equilibrium, static games of incomplete information and Bayesian Nash equilibrium, and dynamic games of incomplete information and perfect Bayesian equilibrium.
