Some Alternative Approaches To Utility Regulation

Contents:

Author Info

  • Stephen Littlechild

Abstract

"Is it inevitable that monopoly networks should continue to be regulated in their present form? Such regulation has limitations as well as advantages. In some countries, negotiated settlements between utilities and users including customer groups provide greater flexibility and innovation and better representation of consumer interests. There is scope for applying such alternative institutional arrangements in the UK." Copyright (c) 2008 The Author. Journal compilation (c) Institute of Economic Affairs 2008.
