This document consists of an Annotated Reading List (ARL) of the body of knowledge (BoK) and narratives that identify key topics and themes. The BoK literature includes decisions and publications by regulatory agencies and other governmental bodies; policy advisories by think tanks, consultants, donor agencies, and others; and research by academics, consultants, and other experts. Following this Introduction is a note on references, which includes a list of references that are cited numerous times, a list of useful references that can be hard to obtain and so are not cited in the ARL, and a list of useful, technical economic texts. Following that note is the ARL reference list itself with narratives. The ARL is organized into chapters to provide structure to the topics and subtopics. The chapters in this document have different lengths, but these lengths are not intended to imply relative importance. This paper includes the following chapters: general concepts; market structure and competition; financial analysis; regulating overall price level; tariff design; quality, social and environmental issues; information issues; and the regulatory process.
