Review:

Business-to-business cyberdeals--or B2B transactions, in the parlance of the New Economy--are widely seen as the Next Big Thing. But Arthur Scully and William Woods, securities and investment professionals who have specialized in B2B for the past four years, believe the Net itself encourages an offshoot that will ultimately revolutionize the procurement, pricing, and distribution of goods and services. Today's technology enables complementary commercial enterprises to participate in a kind of online bazaar, they contend, "where multiple buyers and sellers can come together in a virtual trading space." In B2B Exchanges, they describe the makeup of several such existing networks and analyze the phenomena for prospective participants. To do so, they focus on four primary derivations: Trading Hubs ("buyer and seller communities for multiple verticals that have not yet embraced the Internet"), Post and Browse Markets ("a sophisticated Bulletin Board ... where parties negotiate a deal between themselves"), Auction Markets ("in which multiple buyers or sellers bid competitively on a contract") and Fully Automated Exchanges (offering "centralized ... competitive bidding between multiple buyers and sellers, with automatic matching of orders"). Recommended for businesses that appreciate the possibilities and want to take early advantage of them. --Howard Rothman
