The natural gas market : sixty years of regulation and deregulation by Paul W MacAvoy( )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 2,005 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over six decades federal regulatory agencies have attempted different strategies to regulate the natural gas industry in the USA. This work demonstrates that no affected group has gained from these experiments in public control and that all participants would gain from deregulation
The unsustainable costs of partial deregulation by Paul W MacAvoy( )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three decades ago, federal policy makers - Republicans and Democrats - embarked on a general strategy of deregulation. In the electricity, gas delivery, and telecommunications industries, the strategy called for restructuring to separate production from transmission and distribution, followed by the elimination of price controls. The expected results were lower prices and increased quality, reliability, and scope of services. Paul W. MacAvoy, an economist with forty years of experience in the regulatory field, assesses the results and concludes that deregulation has failed to achieve any of these goals in any of these industries." "MacAvoy shows that we now have only partial deregulation, a mixture of oligopoly structure with direct price control. He explores why this system leads to volatile and high prices, reduced investment, and low profitability, and what policy actions can be implemented to address these problems."--Jacket
Natural gas networks performance after partial deregulation : five quantitative studies( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers the first set of quantitative analyses of the results of deregulation of the gas wellhead process coupled with partial deregulation of pipeline transportation and product storage. This complex process - which involves taking pipelines out of the field markets as product purchasers, and creating spot gas and pipeline space markets - has changed the nature and extent of services for gas at the burner tip, and the level as well as volatility of prices for these services. Using econometric tools of analysis, the authors concentrating on these changes uncover surprising findings in contrast to what regulatory reform was supposed to accomplish."--Jacket
The recurrent crisis in corporate governance by Paul W MacAvoy( Book )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the mid-1980s two crises have overtaken governance of the American corporation - the loss of competitiveness in the 1980s and the loss of investor trust in financial management in the late 1990s. This book proposes specific changes in conduct to resolve these crises, principally by putting the board of directors in charge of management. The detailed analysis and critique of performance of governance specifies reforms that will make that possible. The reforms are tightly connected to the authors' analysis of the causes of breakdowns in the largest corporations in which management has been subject to criminal and civil investigation

1980s. Originally invoked as a means of controlling the prices set by monopolies, this policy tool found extended use in the last quarter-century to do everything from keeping down energy prices to protecting the health and safety of workers and the quality of the environment. In most cases regulation has been founded on the best of intentions, but as the deregulation of the airline, trucking, and railroad industries in the 1980s made clear there are other ways of
