Resumen:
This paper analyzes a one-way network formation problem. We assume that each path connecting two agents has an associated cost which is the sum of the number of edges it includes and is shared among the agents. Another assumption is that connecting to an agent pays off. for the number of connections that the agent can provide as well as for her intrinsic value. We .nd a weak identity between strict Nash structures and circular networks and circular networks emerge as robust and optimal structures that maximize the bene.ts of the interactions among agents minimizing the costs of network formation. Keywords: network formation game, shared costs, non cooperative game. JEL Classi.cation Number: D20, C72
