Ma et al. — and a number of others too — have been looking inefficiencies

self-interested routing mechanisms such as using the hot-potato algorithm, 
because the cost of doing so do not result in profit, though it benefits 
the system as a whole).

Ma et al.
"Internet Economics: The Use of Shapley Value for ISP Settlement"

Ma et al.
"On cooperative settlement between content, transit, and eyeball internet 
service providers"

Cheung et al.
"Can bilateral ISP peering lead to network-wide cooperative settlement"

Mycek et al.
"Cooperative multi-provider routing optimization and income distribution"
