【Titile】: The Structure of Trade Networks
【Abstract】: This paper examines the structure of trade relationships with coordination failures. The static model shows that as the gains from trade, the communication quality or the importance of the fundamental value increases, or the coordination difficulty or the risk of trade opportunity decreases, the optimal market structure tends toward a complete market where all members trade with each other. On the opposite side, the optimal market structure tends toward Autarky. Furthermore, the dynamic model demonstrates that when potential neighbors become more scarce, people care more about the future, or new technology breakthroughs occur more frequently, it is optimal to have more neighbors to back up for the potential technological breakthrough. An additional dynamic model shields insights into why the intellectual history documents an evolution towards the increasing support for free trade.
