Governments, Competition and Utility Regulationby Colin Robinson (Editor)
Robinson (economics, U. of Surrey, UK) presents nine papers from the 2003 Beesley Lectures on Regulation, arranged by the London Business School and the Institute of Economic Affairs and dedicated to the analysis of privatized utilities in Britain and, to a lesser extent, elsewhere. Topics addressed include competition policy and trade after the Cancun meeting of the World Trade Organization, the impact of antitrust policy on consumer welfare, efficiencies in merger control, emissions trading, energy regulation and competition after the 2003 White Paper on the control of carbon dioxide emissions and maintenance of security of energy supplies, regulation of the London Underground, the future of regulation in water, and the need for European merger control. Each paper is accompanied by commentary by another author. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
