About the Book:

The rapid growth of network industries has generated much comment amongst academics and policy makers. This timely volume takes an interdisciplinary, case study-based approach to examining network issues and experiences in order to develop recommendations that can inform antitrust, regulatory, and legislative policy. Legal, economic, political, and institutional aspects of network access are analyzed.

The first part of the volume focuses on five topics that are central to reasoned analysis of the access problem. The second part presents ten case studies of network access in the energy, transportation, telecommunications, internet, and banking industries. The volume concludes with comparisons and contrasts across the cases and policy recommendations.

Network Access, Regulation and Antitrust will prove invaluable to students of Business, Economics, Law and Economics and Industrial Economics, and to policy makers and academics working in the field. The volume is edited by Diana Moss, Vice President and Senior Research Fellow--American Antitrust Institute. Contributors are: John Kwoka, Lawrence White, Norman Hawker, Rudolph Peritz, Jonathan Rubin, Diana Moss, Richard O’Neill, Michael Pelcovits, Richard Brunell, Donald Baker, D. Adam Candeub, Peter Fox-Penner, Albert Foer, and Harry First.
