Universal Service Policies as Wealth Redistribution.
Mueller, Milton
Government Information Quarterly, v16 n4 p353-58 1999
Offers a critical reassessment of the underlying rationale for universal service policies and argues that public policies designed to promote universal telecommunications access are simply a form of wealth redistribution. Considers economic and political issues and discusses how telecommunications can help ameliorate inequalities but not eliminate the causes. (Author/LRW)
