    schema:description ""This book explores the wave of liberalization reforms experienced by OECD network industries. Focusing on the telecommunications sector, the authors analyze the latest data available on liberalization and privatization, and following a political economics approach, they integrate standard economic analysis with the most recent studies of the political determinants of market-oriented policies. The book presents new econometric evidence on several policy issues, including institutional complementarities dynamics, the problem of policy sequencing and the role of government political ideology. The detailed and comprehensive discussion offers insights into how so many countries adopting similar reforms actually differ in their policy 'bundling', intensity and implementation of liberalization and privatization."--Publisher's description."@en ;
    schema:description ""This book analyzes the economic, regulatory, and political facets behind the liberalization wave observed in network industries (such as electronic communications, gas, electricity, water, postal services, airports, and rail), in OECD countries and globally, in the past three decades. During this period, many countries around the world have experienced a deep and extensive wave of pro-market reforms in these industries, once dominated by state-controlled monopolies. Policies aimed at removing restrictions to entry into previously heavily regulated markets and promoting government withdrawal from corporate ownership have been implemented throughout the world, and especially in OECD countries, stimulated by globalization and by the diffusion of pro-market reforms. In this book, we focus on market liberalizations and integrate the traditional economic analysis with the most recent studies of the political determinants of market-oriented policies, following a "political economics" approach."--Introduction, page xi."@en ;
