520    "Have you ever wondered how your telephone company or 
       Internet service provider can give you access to almost 
       all people in the world, or how electricity suppliers can 
       compete with each other if there is only one electric 
       supply line passing through your street? This Element 
       deals with the economics and public regulation of such 
       network industries. It puts particular emphasis on the 
       specific economic concepts used for analyzing them and on 
       the regulatory reform movement and the compatibility of 
       regulation and competition. Worldwide most of these 
       industries have changed dramatically in recent years, 
       telecommunications in particular. Network industries 
       mostly exhibit economies of scale in production and 
       similar economies in consumption. Both of these properties
       cause market power problems that often require industry-
       specific regulation. However, due to technological and 
       market changes network policies have moved on from end-
       user regulation to wholesale regulation and in some cases 
       to deregulation"--Back cover
