Research Paper

Clubs and Networks

Professor Sanjeev Goyal
Professor Sanjeev Goyal

Professor Sanjeev Goyal has published a new working paper with Sihua Ding and Marcin Dziubinski.

A recurring theme in the study of society is the concentration of influence and power that is driven through unequal membership of groups and associations. In some instances these bodies constitute a small world while in others they are fragmented into distinct cliques. This paper presents a new model of clubs and networks to understand the sources of individual marginalization and the origins of different club networks.
