Regulation, Competition and Liberalization

Mark Armstrong () and David Sappington

Industrial Organization from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: In many countries throughout the world, regulators are struggling to determine whether and how to introduce competition into regulated industries. This essay examines the complexities involved in the liberalization process. While stressing the importance of case-specific analyses, this essay distinguishes liberalization policies that generally are pro-competitive from corresponding anti-competitive liberalization policies
