SoSe 21: The Business of Media

Daniel Gräßer

Kommentar

Media goods are cultural goods, laden with significance and requirements from society. They are supposed to contribute to the public sphere and public discourse, to preserve culture and language, thus fulfilling fundamental functions for democratic societies. They are also economic goods, produced under conditions of scarcity, supplied according to consumer’s demand, meant to generate profit, similar to virtually every other consumer good traded on markets. Against the back drop of this (tense?) relationship, the course will initially discuss economic theories and schools of economic thought. This will lay the groundwork to take a closer look at media goods, their goods characteristics, and the specific market constellation that arises from them. The course will then focus on current developments, opportunities and threats media companies face on various media markets. Technological developments like digitization, various types of convergence, fragmentation of media audiences, changes in media use, and new players from adjacent and distant industries, among other phenomena, have put severe pressure on traditional media business models. All of this will be discussed with not only economic, but also regulatory and normative perspectives in mind.
