Causal Inference in Network Economics

by   Sridhar Mahadevan, et al.

Network economics is the study of a rich class of equilibrium problems that occur in the real world, from traffic management to supply chains and two-sided online marketplaces. In this paper we explore causal inference in network economics, building on the mathematical framework of variational inequalities, which is a generalization of classical optimization. Our framework can be viewed as a synthesis of the well-known variational inequality formalism with the broad principles of causal inference
