Competition and Regulation in Network Industries: Not an Easy Balance to Strike. Comments on Koski and Kretschmer

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).
