Production costs and deregulation
Unlike some of the existing literature, our discussion implies that either (1) regulation lowers production costs and makes the gains to deregulation relatively small or (2) regulation increases production costs and makes the social and political gains to deregulation relatively greater. While some may not find alternative (1) credible, one thing is clear: claiming that the deregulatory gains are small because regulation increases costs is not an alternative society faces.
