Telecommunications Regulation

Andrea Renda


CEPS Senior Fellow Andrea Renda contributed a chapter on “Telecommunications Regulation” to this comprehensive volume entitled Regulation and Economics. Edited by Roger J. Van den Bergh, Professor of Law and Economics, Erasmus School of Law at Erasmus University in Rotterdam and Alessio M. Pacces, Professor of Law and Finance, Erasmus School of Law, Erasmus University and Research Associate, European Corporate Governance Institute, the book provides a state-of-the-art overview of regulatory economics and reviews the main theories, tools, and domains of regulation. The book is divided into six parts: regulation in general; tools of regulation; social regulation; regulation of public utilities; regulation of non-natural-monopolies, and regulation of professions. Regulation and Economics begins with a valuable introductory chapter on the law and economics of regulation followed by 17 concise chapters on specific subjects in regulation including highly topical matters such as regulation of banking, finance and insurance; energy markets and telecommunications; and environmental and risk regulation. Providing an overview of the most important insights in regulatory economics and providing a useful access point to the more specialized literature in this area, this unique book will particularly benefit students of law and economics, as well as academics and government officials of regulatory agencies.
