Promotional Information

Rather than inundate the reader with institutional details that will soon be out of date, this impressive book provides the tools necessary to analyze current and future regulatory and antitrust issues. Its compelling set of contemporary applications should make it appealing to advanced undergraduates and a useful reference for graduate students. -- Michael Greenstone, 3M Associate Professor of Economics, MIT How do Viscusi, Harrington, and Vernon do it? Their book keeps getting better and better. It is only 'natural' that they have a monopoly on teaching students, faculty, and policymakers the economics of regulation and antitrust. -- Thomas J. Kniesner, Chair and Krisher Professor, Department of Economics, Syracuse University This book is by far the most comprehensive and analytically sophisticated treatment of its subject available. The combination of antitrust with government regulation makes the book especially valuable for any course about the effects of government on the private economy. The book manages to convey both contemporary economic theory and current regulatory practice with uncommon lucidly and without burdening the reader with jargon or legalese. -- Sam Peltzman, Ralph and Dorothy Keller Distinguished Service Professor of Economics, Emeritus, Graduate School of Business, University of Chicago
