Format: Paperback
Albeit dated now in some respects, this work is still extensively quoted and still well worth a read for businesses, policymakers and others.
Now that Vickers is moving on from the OFT, perhaps he and the other authors would consider an update.

Simply ... a must! 16 July 2006
By Giovanni Canitano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Want a stand-alone textbook on regulatory economics for both technicians and non? Keep "Regulatory Reform" always with you, especially for a quick review of key regulatory topics. Ideal for undergraduate students.

Cheers ...

Great Introduction 21 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
An extremely well-written introduction into monopoly regulation both in theory and in practice. Armstrong et al. explain the relevant concepts without making use of mathematical models.
