Efficient Cost Passthrough

Christian Holzleitner

Journal of Regulatory Economics, 2001, vol. 20, issue 1, 97 pages

Abstract: This paper analyzes how far a regulated price should be adjusted to realized marginal cost in a stochastic environment. Lyon (1996) shows that partial cost passthrough will improve welfare relative to an exogenously fixed price cap even if incentives for effort supply are reduced. In this paper a simple regulatory mechanism is presented that achieves full cost passthrough and at the same time provides efficient incentives for effort supply.
