with Shane Greenstein, Tommaso Valletti: w21950
The “net neutrality” principle has triggered a heated debate and advocates have proposed policy interventions.

We stress the incentives of market participants, and highlight the economic conflicts behind the arguments put forward by the different parties. We also identify several key open questions.
