The Economics of Variety

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Business book series (BRIEFSBUSINESS)


In this chapter, I review the theoretical basis for the economic analysis of variety. The goal of this chapter is twofold: I want to position critically my work and developed few useful concepts. In particular, I will describe two approaches to the issue of variety and point out their different conclusions on the nature of variety generation and its limits.
