Abstract: Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) help to reduce transaction costs in several ways. The study of this phenomenon and the resulting economic consequences are the underlying common theme in the four subsequent chapters of my dissertation. Each of them is a self-contained paper that contributes to the field of Industrial Organization. In particular, I contribute to the study of two important phenomena that arose as a consequence of the ICT-enabled reduction in transaction costs, which modern societies have seen over the last two decades: electronic commerce (E-Commerce, in what follows) and (commons based) “peer production.
