Stuart Buck -- A Search Engine for Economic Analysis of Digital Markets

The plentitude of the Internet makes good search engines indispensable. For instance, someone needs to sort the Lindsay Lohan fan sites from the Hillary Duff fan sites.

My searcher to indulge my niche interest in law and economics academic papers is Stuart Buck, who today notes two interesting articles about cellular pricing with more competitive entry and airline pricing under conditions of potential entry.

Like I said, it is a niche market, so I don't expect his stock if he goes public to reach Google heights. Nevertheless, he consistently brings to my attention interesting articles that I then download and forget in PDF files on my hard drive -- and then sometimes even read! And as for why I have this niche interest, I ask myself that same question every time I am reading an academic article and the footnotes hit the triple digits.
