The Economics of Innovation in the Telecommunications Industry


The revolution in telecommunications technology and market structure has profoundly changed the information services infrastructure in the United States and in other industrialized nations. Deregulation of interstate telecommunications markets has occurred in response to technological advances, but local exchange markets are still subject to government regulation. This book describes the history of the effects of regulation and market structure on innovation in telecommunications, examines the economic implications of emerging telecommunications technologies and surveys the economic arguments for the deregulation of local exchange networks.
