    Abstract

    Network industries present several counterintuitive aspects. This peculiarity has attracted particular attention among policymakers, but public intervention has not always been irreproachable. A continuously improving appraisal of network industries tends to allow a better informed policy action and a good balance between otherwise potentially competing policies (competition policy and sector-specific regulation in the first place, but also innovation and standardization policies).
