"Christopher Castaneda's study of the construction of the pipelines that transported southwestern gas to the Northeast traces the ways in which the federal regulatory process fostered competitive growth in the natural gas industry." "In 1938, the Natural Gas Act granted the Federal Power Commission jurisdiction over the interstate transmission and sale of natural gas. The FPC used its new powers to guide, shape, and manage an intensely competitive period in the industry. As Castaneda shows, aggressive and politically astute entrepreneurs based in the Southwest took advantage of economic opportunity and a regulatory environment conducive to industry growth. They financed and built the nation's longest gas pipelines to connect the massive southwestern reserves with the major northern energy markets. The coal industry, which supplied the raw product for manufactured gas, and the railroad industry, which transported the coal, adamantly but unsuccessfully opposed the action and attempted to halt the introduction of natural gas into their northeastern markets. First, during the war years, emergency regulatory agencies directed the expansion of the industry into Appalachia. Then, in the ensuing peacetime, market forces prompted entrepreneurs to compete vigorously for regulatory approval to build pipelines to sell natural gas in the Northeast." "While previous studies have examined the development of the natural gas industry after 1954, when the Supreme Court's Phillips decision established the FPC as a regulator of price control rather than as a manager of industrial growth, Castaneda's is the first to examine this earlier entrepreneurial era. Based on exhaustive research in corporate records and government documents, Regulated Enterprise offers a case study of government-business relations during a period of rapid industrial expansion and suggests a new way of looking at federal regulation and competitive growth."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This collection of fifteen essays by leading experts in regulation is unique in its focus on the constitutional implications of recent regulatory developments in the UK, the EU, and the US. The chapters reflect current developments and crises which are significant in many areas of public policy, not only regulation. These include the development of governance in place of government in many policy areas, the emergence of networks of public and private actors, the credit crunch, techniques for countering climate change, the implications for fundamental rights of regulatory arrangements and the development of complex accountability mechanisms designed to promote policy objectives. Constitutional issues discussed in The Regulatory State include regulatory governance, models of economic and social regulation, non-parliamentary rule-making, the UK's devolution arrangements and regulation, the credit crisis, the rationing of common resources, regulation and fundamental rights, the European Competition Network, private law making and European integration, innovative regulator sanctions recently introduced in the UK, the auditing of regulatory reform, and parliamentary oversight and judicial review of regulators. The introductory chapter focuses on testing times for regulation, and the concluding chapter draws ten lessons from the substantive chapters, noting the importance of regulatory diversity, the complexity of networks and relations between regulatory actors and the executive, the new challenges to regulatory habits posed by climate change and the credit crisis, the wider economic and legal context in which regulation takes place and the accountability networks - including judicial review, parliamentary oversight and audit - within which regulation operates.

This book contains a series of studies of the regulation under English law of the range of business organisational structures available to entrepreneurs. It analyses the commonest of these structures,including limited companies (public and private), groups of companies, privatised enterprises, and partnerships, as well as the more specialised forms such as industrial and provident societies, banks, building societies, insurance companies, joint ventures, franchise agreements, limited partnerships and overseas companies. Set within the context of a period of considerable actual and proposed legal change, the contributions (from recognised authorities in their respective fields) analyse the broad regulatory structure adopted for each of the above business forms, outline the changing patterns of regulation and consider likely future developments. Several broad themes run through the work, including the relationship between the economic desirability of facilitating enterprise and the need to regulate against possible abuse; stakeholder protection; pursuit of risk management strategies and the implications of European harmonisation in the business sector.

A number of public enterprise (PE) executives have long felt the need for a book which would provide necessary information and analysis of various dimensions of PE management and privatisation. The book provides at one place, a precise and authoritative account of the concept, policy, and analysis of major issues confronting PEs. Public ownership per se does not make PE performance sub-optimal. The operation of the Government system, of which PE is a sub-system, has not been conducive to performance. During the last six decades, inadequate political will and vested interests have come in the way of freeing PEs from excessive and throttling controls, and demoralising accountability. Not letting the managers manage with the freedom required in the liberalised and globalised set-up is the problem. The multifarious and complex managerial problems of PEs, which get compounded by faltering moves towards privatisation, cannot be wished away. These have been considered in the book at some length. The book, first published in 1980, continues to be a standard work on the subject. This latest edition has been revised by Dr. R.K.Mishra, Director, Institute of Public Enterprise,Hyderabad.

This is a most enlightening book written in a most accessible style, with periodic in-depth treatment of theoretical propositions, using diagrams. Students studying a variety of economics and business related courses could find this book invaluable. David Gray, International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation One of the most exciting developments in economics in recent decades has been the emergence of a coherent framework for understanding why organisations have different structures and attributes. There is no better way of learning about this fascinating literature on incomplete information and transaction costs than Martin Ricketts s accessible and authoritative book. Very highly recommended. J.H. Pencavel, Stanford University, US Martin Ricketts has succeeded in updating his book with the addition of a completely new section on the burning issue of privatisation policy in East and West, along with a very readable exposition of the new micro-foundation of property rights theory. It is a brilliantly lucid introduction into modern institutional economics, exemplified by the theory of the firm the best book of its kind on the market. Rudolf Richter, University of Saarland, Germany To own or not to own? To make or to buy? To franchise or to manage? To contract long or to contract short? To trust or not to trust? To license or not to license? These and other questions are the subject matter of this excellent introduction to the theory of economic organisation. This fully updated edition of Martin Ricketts s 1987 book includes: New developments in the property rights theory of the firm Further extended treatment of co-operative and mutual forms of enterprise Entirely new sections on transactions cost economics and public policy New chapters on the economics of privatisation and the regulation of natural monopoly . In addition, transaction cost, property rights and agency approaches are contrasted, and Austrian and evolutionary criticisms of standard theory are explored. The author applies these theories to a wide range of questions from the choice of piece rates or time rates in contracting to the debate on Anglo-American versus other varieties of capitalism . Public policy in the fields of regulation and privatisation is also considered using the same framework. Non-specialists will find this book to be an accessible introduction to the main theoretical approaches to economic organisation. Students and researchers specialising in the fields of economics and business will find that this third, updated edition of The Economics of Business Enterprise continues to provide stimulating insights suggestive of further research.
