Developments in the Economics of Privatization and Regulation

Elgar Research Reviews in Economics

Michael A. Crew and David Parker

Regulatory economics has become increasingly important over the last quarter of a century, in part as a result of the wave of privatization, starting in the UK, which made the regulation of monopoly of much greater interest. The discipline has also become more rigorous, increasingly employing powerful analytical and econometric methods. This research review examines some of the leading contributions to the literature on this subject.
