As the author demonstrates, AT&T's status eroded over many years. That process of erosion began when the FCC allowed competition into small corners of the telecommunications system, while professing support for the overall status of AT&T. But as the FCC should have foreseen, the structure of regulatory prices provided a generous price umbrella for the new entrants into telecommunications. Each time the FCC allowed more entry, both the entrants' expected profits and the demand for still more entry rose+-+120098670532410929ocn000005999book19690.39Temin, PeterThe Jacksonian economy+-+4693458485105110ocn001622356book19760.50Temin, PeterDid monetary forces cause the Great Depression?+-+24574584859866ocn006603050book19800.56Temin, PeterTaking your medicine : drug regulation in the United States+-+80721392153247626ocn169453489book20080.32Finkelstein, Stan NReasonable Rx : solving the drug price crisisExplores the problem of high drug prices by taking a close look at the science of drug development, how the drug industry operates, how new drugs are discovered, and how the government affects and controls these processes.

In what ways do existing paths of communication within a firm affect its ability to absorb new technology and techniques? How do American banks affect how companies operate? Do theoretical constructs correspond to actual behavior?. Because business enterprises are complex institutions, these questions can prove difficult to address.

The essays show that organizations, like people, learn that this process can be organized more or less effectively, which can have major implications for how competition works. The first three essays in this volume explore techniques firms have used to both manage information to create valuable asymmetries and to otherwise suppress unwelcome competition.

In this timely and important book, Peter Temin and David Vines argue that our current predicament is a catastrophe rivaled only by the Great Depression. Taking an in-depth look at the history of both, they explain what went wrong and why, and demonstrate why international leadership is needed to restore prosperity and prevent future crises. Temin and Vines argue that the financial collapse of the 1930s was an ""end-of-regime crisis"" in which the econo4916ocn042649695book20000.63Temin, PeterEngines of enterprise : an economic history of New EnglandHistory"New England's Economy has a history as dramatic as any in the world. From an inauspicious beginning - as immigration ground to a halt in the eighteenth century - New England went on to lead the United States in its transformation from an agrarian to an industrial economy." "Engines of Enterprise tells this dramatic story in a sequence of narrative essays written by preeminent historians and ecconomists. These essays chart the changing fortunes of entrepreneurs and venturers, businessmen and inventors, and common folk toiling in fields, in factories, and in air-conditioned offices. The authors describe how, short of staple crops, colonial New Englanders turned to the sea and built an empire; and how the region became the earliest home of the textile industry as commercial fortunes underwrote new industries in the nineteenth century. They show us the region as it grew ahead of the rest of the country and as the rest of the United States caught up. And they trace the transformation of New England's products and exports from cotton textiles and machine tools to such intangible goods as education and software. Concluding short essays also put forward surprising but persuasive arguments - for instance, that slavery, while not prominent in colonial New England, was a critical part of the economy; and that the federal government played a crucial role in the development of the region's industrial skills."--BOOK JACKET+-+944555921539118ocn124031956book20070.73Feinstein, C.

The Roman Market Economy uses the tools of modern economics to show how trade, markets, and the Pax Romana were critical to ancient Rome's prosperity. Peter Temin, one of the world's foremost economic historians, argues that markets dominated the Roman economy. He traces how the Pax Romana encouraged trade around the Mediterranean, and how Roman law promoted commerce and banking. Temin shows that a reasonably vibrant market for wheat extended throughout the empire, and suggests that the Antonine Plague may have been responsible for turning the stable prices of the early empire into the persistent inflation of the late. He vividly describes how various markets operated in Roman times, from commodities and slaves to the buying and selling of land. Applying modern methods for evaluating economic growth to data culled from historical sources, Temin argues that Roman Italy in the second century was as prosperous as the Dutch Republic in its golden age of the seventeenth century. The Roman Market Economy reveals how economics can help us understand how the Roman Empire could have ruled seventy million people and endured for centuries29113ocn000641485book19730.66Temin, PeterNew economic history: selected readings1586ocn044720789book19990.88Elites, minorities, and economic growthConference proceedings+-+13937399951529ocn784708330book20120.84Temin, PeterPrometheus shackled : Goldsmith Banks and England's financial revolution after 1700HistoryUsing new archival data from goldsmith banks, Temin and Voth document how government regulation and wartime financing stifled the growth of private credit markets during the Industrial Revolution.
