Quality Variation When Prices Are Regulated

Author

Listed:
  • Lawrence J. White

Abstract

Quality has been a neglected area of public utility regulation analysis. Many authors are uneasy about the quality levels that result from regulation but they frequently can only conclude that "it is uncertain whether consumers found this quality to be worth the price they paid."
