The Tragedy of Complexity

This paper presents an equilibrium theory of product complexity. Complex products generate higher potential surplus, but require more attention from consumers. Because consumer attention is limited and a common resource across products, an attention externality arises: Sellers distort the complexity of their own products to divert attention from other products. In contrast to the classic tragedy of the commons, this externality can lead to too much or too little complexity. Paradoxically, increases in information processing capacity that relax the consumer’s attention constraint can make it more likely that products are overly complex compared with the social optimum.
