This study shows how to develop ideal policies when monopoly must be relied upon in place of competition and it explains why it will be difficult to induce monopolies to pursue such policies. The author develops economic welfare foundations that allow for the evaluation of an enterprise's performance from a social welfare point of view. When competition can function it brings out the best possible performance. When competition cannot function, however, welfare foundations can be used to prescribe socially desirable policies. Without competition, an enterprise is not induced to pursue these policies. Indeed, incentives created within public utilities are shown to be quite undesirable. The book examines what is known about ways to improve these incentives and familiarizes the reader with all major tools of analysis for monopoly regulation.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1989. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Competition may not function well where technology calls for large and complex investments, as in the electrivity industry where public utilities often provide service. This book presents economic welfare foundations for the purpose of evaluating how well, from a social point of view, an enterprise performs when competition is unable to function. Problems with existing institutions are emphasized. Topics treated include welfare measures and their uses in peak-load pricing, second-best pricing, and income distribution. Professor Sherman covers public choice difficulties of government intervention, and describes problems with incentives in statutory monopolies and efforts to overcome them through the study of principal-agent relationships. Contestability and sustainable prices are also discussed, as well as effects of uncertainty and imperfect information. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521368629
