Overview

Although neoliberals have billed it as a panacea, deregulation expands the possible divergences between public and private interests and thus, according to Rossi (Florida State U. College of Law), requires a reevaluation of the traditional public law doctrines that define the rules in competitive markets. He uses a case study of electric power deregulation to draw general lessons within a framework of an "incomplete contracts" government relations bargaining approach that isolates incentives and welfare states associated with contract renegotiation. Among the doctrines of regulatory law that are examined utilizing this approach are customer service obligations, the takings clause as a constraint on regulators, the filed tariff doctrine as a mechanism for limiting ex post judicial enforcement, the dormant commerce clause and state action immunity from antitrust enforcement, and regulatory federalism.
