Pierre Buigues,

The Economics of Antitrust and Regulation in Telecommunications: Perspectives for the New European Regulatory Framework
 
 
The Economics of Antitrust and Regulation in Telecommunications is the outcome of a year long project conducted by the European Commission, and provides readers with a framework for enhancing the treatment of antitrust cases within the sector. Its fundamental point of departure is the aim of better integrating economics with the sector's industrial realities. An aim in which it succeeds. The work examines in-depth the fundamentals of network industry market definition (increasingly a problem in convergent industries), collective dominance, network access and resource allocation by cutting-edge academics and prominent European Commission antitrust officials. As such many lessons are relevant beyond narrow confines of the telecommunications sector. A particularly timely feature of the work is the inclusion of a section on 3G markets. The result is a definitive and important work. Taken as a whole, this resource provides valuable insights, and not only for the telecommunications sector but network industries in general. The tome is essential reading for business, telecommunication, public policy, and network technology decision-makers around the globe.
