[ih] protocol structure -> economic structure

There's an idea that the structure of a protocol (or the topology implied
by the protocol or that emerges from it) determines the economic structure
of the service providers and users of that protocol. Sadly I can't now
remember where I got this idea from.

Does anyone here have pointers to literature mentioning or describing this
idea? Is anyone acknowledged as its originator? Does it have a snappy name?
