Have you ever wondered about the key growth drivers of companies like Facebook, Apple, Google, and Uber? One thing ties together the business models of all these companies: they facilitate interaction between two or more customer verticals, and are hence called multi-sided platforms. The book Matchmakers , by David S. Evans and Richard Schmalenesee, brings out the stirring and unconventional economics behind these models with the help of numerous case studies. Matchmaking businesses, they point out, are not new. From literally matchmaking grandmas to bars for people to mingle, multi-sided platforms are a part of life. Since the early s, the dotcom boom has eased the friction in transaction of business and information, especially through such platforms. As very little literature on the working of multi-sided platforms was available till the mids, most startups built strategies through their own trial-and-error experiments on network effects. The book talks about these experiments, outlining the economic underpinnings of matchmaking platforms.
Matchmakers: The New Economics of Multisided Platforms
In an environment where markets, consumers, and technology are ever changing and increasingly interdependent, these businesses, which bring together a number of groups who need each other and make it easy for them to work together, are essential. But platforms operate very differently than traditional, one-sided businesses like, say, grocery stores , and their logic can seem not only counterintuitive but downright counterproductive.

The Nobel Prize-winning economist Alvin Roth shows how “matching markets” affect us all — from finding a job or a college
Roth vividly describes the successes of market design. Most of the study of economics deals with commodity markets, where the price of a good connects sellers and buyers. Roth reveals the matching markets hidden around us and shows us how to recognize a good match and make smarter, more confident decisions. He writes with verve and style.

In a scene in the film A Beautiful Mind , the great mathematician John Nash discusses with friends the strategies of approaching women. However, if the men coordinate their efforts and each approaches a different woman, they can increase the likelihood of all acquiring a date by the end of the night.
This logic was later formalized in economist Gary Becker’s “A Theory of Marriage,” becoming a hallmark of economic theory. Its main prediction holds that both men and women can be objectively ranked by some trait or index of attributes, which could include education, income and age—”attractiveness,” for short. The best social outcome is when they are matched assortatively; the most-attractive man matches with the most-attractive woman, the second most attractive with the second, and so on down the ranking Chart 1.
In such a matching, no man or woman wants to deviate from his or her choice of mate because all the more-attractive potential partners are already taken, and the less-attractive ones are not in his or her interest. In other words, assortative matching is not only socially optimal, but is also what is called a “Nash equilibrium,” a state in which each participant in a strategic interaction is acting optimally, given the choices of all the other participants.

Multi-sided platforms MSPs have been around for several centuries. Only recently, however, MSPs have become prominent in the economy, especially due to the internet and digitization wave across many industries. The idea behind MSPs is simple: they connect two or more interdependent user groups, by playing an intermediation or a matchmaking role Gawer ; Evans and Schmalensee Note, however, that the concept of electronic markets has been around for several decades, even before the start of scientific research in this field and the inception of the Electronic Markets Journal in This is due to two key factors.
First, platforms play an important role throughout the economy, as they minimize transactions costs between market sides e. Hagiu Second, MSPs appear to be the most powerful business models in the digital economy due to their adaptability and ability to handle complexity, rapid scale-up, and value capture. Such businesses have demonstrated remarkable growth and achieved high financial valuations. Nevertheless, despite many companies opting for MSP business models, to date only a few have been successful Yoffie et al.

And payments for organ donation are generally prohibited on ethical grounds. In such situations, how can one find matches that are stable, in the sense that no one backs out because they feel they could do better? In the s, Shapley and his colleague David Gale analysed a familiar matchmaking problem — marriage. They asked how ten men and ten women could be matched such that none would see any benefit in breaking the partnership to find a better match.
