Summary

This volume assesses the state of deregulation in the major U.S. network industries: airlines, railroads, telecommunications, and electricity. Each chapter identifies the central policy issues that have arisen in each industry as it undergoes its transformation to a deregulated environment. The authors reveal the flaws of remaining regulations and make the case for faster and more comprehensive deregulation.
