This new edition of the leading text on business and government focuses on the insights economic reasoning can provide in analyzing regulatory and antitrust issues. Departing from the traditional emphasis on institutions, Economics of Regulation and Antitrust asks how economic theory and empirical analyses can illuminate the character of market operation and the role for government action and brings new developments in theory and empirical methodology to bear on these questions. The fourth edition has been substantially revised and updated throughout, with new material added and extended discussion of many topics. Part I, on antitrust, has been given a major revision to reflect advances in economic theory and recent antitrust cases, including the case against Microsoft and the Supreme Court's Kodak decision. Part II, on economic regulation, updates its treatment of the restructuring and deregulation of the telecommunications and electric power industries, and includes an analysis of what went wrong in the California energy market in 2000 and 2001. Part III, on social regulation, now includes increased discussion of risk-risk analysis and extensive changes to its discussion of environmental regulation. The many case studies included provide students not only pertinent insights for today but also the economic tools to analyze the implications of regulations and antitrust policies in the future.The book is suitable for use in a wide range of courses in business, law, and public policy, for undergraduates as well at the graduate level. The structure of the book allows instructors to combine the chapters in various ways according to their needs. Presentation of more advanced material is self-contained.

As Chairman of the Civil Aeronautics Board in the late 1970s, Alfred E. Kahn presidedover the deregulation of the airlines and his book, published earlier in that decade, presented thefirst comprehensive integration of the economic theory and institutional practice of economicregulation. In his lengthy new introduction to this edition Kahn surveys and analyzes thederegulation revolution that has not only swept the airlines but has transformed American publicutilities and private industries generally over the past seventeen years.While attitudes towardregulation have changed several times in the intervening years and government regulation has waxedand waned, the question of whether to regulate more or to regulate less is a topic of constantdebate, one that The Economics of Regulation addresses incisively. It clearly remains the standardwork in the field, a starting point and reference tool for anyone working in regulation.Kahn pointsout that while dramatic changes have come about in the structurally competitive industries - theairlines, trucking, stock exchange brokerage services, railroads, buses, cable television, oil andnatural gas - the consensus about the desirability and necessity for regulated monopoly in publicutilities has likewise been dissolving, under the burdens of inflation, fuel crises, and thetraumatic experience with nuclear plants. Kahn reviews and assesses the changes in both areas: he isparticularly frank in his appraisal of the effect of deregulation on the airlines.His conclusiontoday mirrors that of his original, seminal work - that different industries need different mixes ofinstitutional arrangements that cannot be decided on the basis of ideology.Alfred E. Kahn is RobertJulius Thorne Professor of Political Economy at Cornell University and Special Consultant toNational Economic Research Associates.

More than any other area of regulation, antitrust economics shapes law and policy in the United States, the Americas, Europe, and Asia. In a number of different areas of antitrust, advances in theory and empirical work have caused a fundamental reevaluation and shift of some of the assumptions behind antitrust policy. This reevaluation has profound implications for the future of the field. The Oxford Handbook of International Antitrust Economics has collected chapters from many of the leading figures in antitrust. In doing so, this two volume Handbook provides an important reference guide for scholars, teachers, and practitioners. However, it is more than a merely reference guide. Rather, it has a number of different goals. First, it takes stock of the current state of scholarship across a number of different antitrust topics. In doing so, it relies primarily upon the economics scholarship. In some situations, though, there is also coverage of legal scholarship, case law developments, and legal policies. The second goal of the Handbook is to provide some ideas about future directions of antitrust scholarship and policy. Antitrust economics has evolved over the last 60 years. It has both shaped policy and been shaped by policy. The Oxford Handbook of International Antitrust Economics will serve as a policy and research guide of next steps to consider when shaping the future of the field of antitrust.

Eu Competition Law And The Information And Communication Technology Network Industries

Competition policies have long been based on a scholarly tradition focused on static models and static analysis of industrial organisation. However, recent developments in industrial organisation literature have led to significant advances, moving beyond traditional static models and a preoccupation with price competition, to consider the organisation of industries in a dynamic context. This is especially important in the field of information and communication technology (ICT) network industries where competition centres on network effects, innovation and intellectual property rights, and where the key driver of consumer benefit is technological progress. Consequently, when an antitrust intervention is contemplated, a number of considerations that arise out of the specific nature of the ICT sector have to be taken into account to ensure improved consumer welfare. This book considers the adequacy of existing EU competition policy in the area of the ICT industries in the light of the findings of modern economic theory. Particular attention is given to the implications of these dynamic markets for the competitive assessment and treatment of the most common competitive harms in this area, such as non-price predatory practices, tying and bundling, co-operative standard setting, platform joint ventures and co-operative R&D.
