We define a social welfare function, by   4αη 2 under C, C def 2αη 2 under I, I W = ηUA + ηUB + πA + πB =  3αη 2 under C, I , I, C . which is clearly maximized under the outcome C, C . The intuition behind it is as follows. Since the firms are owned by consumers, and since prices are merely transfers from consumers to firms and therefore cancel out in the welfare function just defined, the only net effect on social welfare is the utility gain from the network sizes. 4 Summary of the network externalities approach The basic questions needed to be answered in analyzing markets affected by network externalities are: (a) Do firms gain by producing compatible machines or incompatible machines?

2 The Network Externalities Approach 29 only one consumer from consuming one brand to another will affect the relative utilities gained by other consumers. 5 Let there be qA Artichoke buyers, and qB Banana buyers. Then, each consumer treats qA and qB as constants which are invariant with respect to her own choice of which brand to purchase. 5 is justified by the fact that the markets we analyze have a large number of consumers. 4 on page 292. 1 on page 308 in Appendix C demonstrates that a Nash-Bertrand equilibrium does not exist in this type of environment.

That is, under compatibility each consumer gains network utility of α2η regardless of how consumers are allocated between the brands. Hence, their purchase decision is unaffected by the network effects. Thus, a U pair of prices pU A , pB constitutes an UPE if the following conditions are simultaneously satisfied: U = pU πB Bη U π A = pU Aη ≥ (pU A − δ)2η ≥ (pU B − δ)2η. Hence, equilibrium prices and profit levels given by U pU A = pB = 2δ U U and πA = πB = 2ηδ. , if consumers do not care about network sizes, the same equilibria emerge under compatibility and incompatibility.
