What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Markets for Power is a remarkably comprehensive analysis of the prospects for deregulating the electric generation industry.... The book should disabuse anyone of the notion that setting up a market for wholesale electricity is an easy task. In its scope and wisdom, it has no competitors; a 'must read' for students of the industry." Roger G. Noll , California Institute of Technology

"This is by far the best treatment of regulatory policy in the electric utility industry. The book succeeds in its analysis of deregulation proposals by sticking closely to economic principles, and avoiding the tiresome polemics associated with debates over competition versus government. control.... Particularly interesting and novel is [the authors'] discussion of the potential for competition in power generation. The book is also noteworthy for its style dispassionate and closely reasoned, yet easily accessible, to the generalist." Robert Weiner , Journal of Policy Analysis and Management
