The proposed research aims at investigating aspects of mediated matching markets that, despite their centrality in the policy debate, remain largely unexplored. Mediated matching markets are markets in which the interactions among the relevant agents (e.g., workers and firms, or consumers and vendors) are mediated by one or multiple platforms. Mediated matching plays a central role in modern economies. Examples include business-to-business (B2B) platforms mediating the interactions between vendors and procurers in search of business opportunities; media outlets mediating the interactions between readers/viewers and content providers and advertisers; video-game consoles mediating the interactions between gamers and video-game developers; operating systems mediating the interactions between end-users and software developers; employment agencies mediating the interactions between employers and job seekers; and dating agencies mediating the search of partner-seekers.
