There are seven recognised causes of 'market failure' - a condition where normal microeconomic processes fail to match supply and demand. In this talk I explain why Internet technology suffers from all seven. I then outline a technical proposal being standardised at the IETF to address at least five of these problems. I also briefly survey solutions addressing the other causes of Internet market failure. Expertise in either network economics or Internet technology will not be assumed.
