Technological Change in Regulated Industries.
Capron, William M., Ed.
The articles in this volume discuss how well industries operating under government regulation respond to technical innovation: do the effects of regulations vary among industries, and if so, does this result from variations in the regulatory approach, the organization of the firms, or the nature of the technology? Industries considered include monopoly firms, the bulk-power industry, the communications industry (especially the telephone system), air transport, and surface transport. (RH)
