Sangeet Choudary, Founder of Platform Thinking Labs, explains the importance of “sandwich economics” and how it is playing out in the telecoms industry.
Food for thought on sandwich economics
As the telco industry evolves, the principles of “sandwich economics” are becoming more relevant. Sangeet Choudary, Founder of Platform Thinking Labs, says the term refers to a set of economic principles that explain how shifts in digital technologies are leading to changes in value and negotiating power in industries. New technologies are creating a more horizontal industry structure where value and power reside in a few layers and other parts of the industry get sandwiched and lose value. He notes this is already starting to play out in the telecom industry.
