520    "Drawing from the most recent work on economic regulation,
       this book introduces readers to the main principles and 
       examines how economic regulation is applied in four key 
       public utility industries (electricity, gas, water and 
       telecommunications). Suitable for students and 
       practitioners with little prior knowledge of economic 
       regulation, this book provides an accessible, non-
       technical entry point to the subject area, exploring the 
       fundamental questions: why do we regulate? What are 
       alternatives to regulation? Which institutions are 
       involved in regulation? What have been the impacts of 
       regulation? Readers will gain a rich understanding of the 
       basic principles that apply to all regulated sectors, as 
       well as the regulatory choices that reflect the specific 
       economic and physical characteristics of different 
       industries. Extensive references provide readers with 
       resources for more in-depth study, and boxed case studies 
       demonstrate connections between regulatory theory and 
       practice"--|cProvided by publisher 
520    "Public utility services matter. Around the world, access 
       to clean water and sanitation facilities, effective 
       telecommunications and Internet services, reliable energy 
       and transport services are indispensible to individuals, 
       societies and economies. Given their critical importance, 
       the public utility industries have long been subject to 
       government regulation"--|cProvided by publisher
