"More than a story of pipeline markets and regulation, this book also offers a rich study of how asset specificity, nondeployable capital, and high up-front capital costs affect market development, regulation, pricing, and entry. Jeff D. Makholm takes what would otherwise be a pretty unexceptional industry - pipeline transport - and makes it of interest to a broader audience, especially those concerned with the new institutional economics."
