Competition Policy & Economic Regulation
Economic regulation is very well researched by both lawyers and economists, not least because there can be huge amounts of money at stake so there is a ready audience for such analysis. I always enjoy reading work by Amelia Fletcher, Catherine Waddams and David Reader, all at the Centre for Competition Policy at the University of East Anglia. Their following papers are on this website:
- CMA Energy Market Investigation - Note of Hearing with the Centre for Competition Policy
- Catherine Waddams - Back to the Future? - Regulating Residential Energy Markets
- Amelia Fletcher - Review of Demand Side (Behavioural) Remedies
- David Reader - Extending 'National Security' in Merger Control and Investment: A Good Deal for the UK?
Dieter Helm and George Yarrow (both Oxford University) are very respected (if sometimes controversial) commentators on utility regulation policy.
Dieter Helm's papers on this site are:
- A Critique of the CMA's Energy Market Investigation provisional findings and remedies
- What to do about the Railways?
- Criticism of the CMA's Energy Market Report
- Cost of Energy Review
George Yarrow's papers on this site are:
- Response to Electricity Market Reform Consultation
- CMA Energy Market Investigation - Submission on the CMA’s Provisional Findings
Every serious student of regulation will have a copy of the Oxford Handbook of Regulation, edited by Robert Baldwin, Martin Cave and Martin Lodge ... and probably also Achieving Regulatory Excellence edited by Cary Coglianese.
