Designing Incentive Regulation for the Telecommunications Industry

Front Cover
The American Enterprise Institute's Studies in Telecommunications Deregulation present new research on telecommunications policy, with particular emphasis on reforms of federal and state regulatory policies that will advance rather than inhibit innovation and consumer welfare. AEI has commissioned more than twenty-five distinguished experts in law, economics, and engineering to write monographs on regulatory issues in telephony, cable television, broadcasting, information services, and other communications technologies. The monographs are written and edited to be immediately useful to legislators, jurists, and public officials at all levels of government - as well as to business executives and consumers, who must live with these policies. As such, the monographs will also find a place in courses on regulated industries and communications policy in economics and communications departments and in business, law, and public policy schools.
