Famous fables of economics : myths of market failures ( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 528 libraries worldwide
"Famous Fables of Economics critiques some of our most cherished stories of market failure. Economists have used these colorful myths to justify a wide range of public policy interventions in the economy, from public provision of goods and services, to economic regulation of industry, to antitrust actions against major corporations. Despite their blatant factual inaccuracies, the appeal of these fables to economic, law, and management academics continues undiminished - the fables are persistently repeated in countless classrooms, textbooks, and academic seminars. Among the fables critiqued here are the lighthouse, the keyboard, the bees and the orchard, General Motors' acquisition of Fisher Body, the learning curve, the Liberty ships, and tulip mania. This controversial book contains a number of articles that explore the mythical nature of some of economists' most cherished stories. It provides an amusing look at economic thought that is accessible to general readers, students, professionals, and academics, and raises questions about the role of the government in society." "The "moral" of these articles is that economic analysis of market efficiency should rely on systematic analysis, not casual anecdotes."--Jacket

Deregulatory takings and the regulatory contract : the competitive transformation of network industries in the United States by J. Gregory Sidak( Book )
15 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and Italian and held by 452 libraries worldwide
That price is the same price that emerges from application of takings jurisprudence and contract principles. Sidak and Spulber produce a comprehensive, coherent theory of "stranded costs," as well as a set of limiting principles for the payment of compensation when changes in government regulation upset settled expectations and harm private investors. Sidak and Spulber reaffirm the superiority of competition over regulation and, on the basis of their conclusions concerning efficient and compensatory pricing of network access, outline principles for deregulating network industries
Global competitive strategy by Daniel F Spulber( Book )
18 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 420 libraries worldwide
"Globalization fundamentally changes the game of business. Strategic frameworks developed for the analysis of purely domestic business necessarily fall short in the international business context. Managers and business students require new approaches to understand and cope with these far-reaching changes. We must learn to think globally in order to succeed. Global Competitive Strategy shows how we can do this by providing a unique set of strategic tools for international business. Such tools include the "Star Analysis" that allows strategy makers to integrate geographic information with market information about the global business environment. Also introduced is the "global value connection" that shows managers how to account for the gains and costs of trade. Aimed at MBA students taking courses in international strategy, consultants, and managers with responsibility for strategic development, this book offers a comprehensive strategic framework for gaming competitive advantage in the global marketplace."--Jacket

Protecting competition from the postal monopoly by J. Gregory Sidak( Book )
2 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 227 libraries worldwide
The Private Express Statutes protect the U.S. Postal Service from competition in the delivery of letter mail. In contrast, few if any corresponding rules protect competition in other areas from the federal government's postal monopoly. Not only are the Postal Service's competitive activities arguably unrestricted by any explicit application of antitrust law, but public ownership and control exempt the Postal Service's actions from the corporate governance that is characteristic of private enterprises. The Postal Service can take advantage of its autonomy and protected letter mail monopoly to subsidize its entry and expansion in competitive markets, such as parcel post and express mail. That raises a fundamental issue: whether Congress's grant of a monopoly to the Postal Service over the delivery of letter mail should be used to restrict or supplant private commerce in other markets
The innovative entrepreneur by Daniel F Spulber( Book )
11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 155 libraries worldwide
"Innovative entrepreneurs are the prime movers of the economy. The innovative entrepreneur helps to overcome two types of institutional frictions. First, existing firms may not innovate efficiently due to incumbent inertia resulting from adjustment costs, diversification costs, the replacement effect, and imperfect adjustment of expectations. The innovative entrepreneur compensates for incumbent inertia by embodying innovations in new firms that compete with incumbents. Second, markets for inventions may not operate efficiently due to transaction costs, imperfect intellectual property protections, costs of transferring tacit knowledge, and imperfect information about discoveries. The innovative entrepreneur addresses inefficiencies in markets for inventions through own-use of discoveries and adoption of innovative ideas. The Innovative Entrepreneur presents an economic framework that addresses the motivation of the innovative entrepreneur, the innovative advantage of entrepreneurs versus incumbent firms, the effects of competitive pressures on incentives to innovate, the consequences of creative destruction, and the contributions of the innovative entrepreneur to the wealth of nations"--
Economics and management of competitive strategy by Daniel F Spulber( Book )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 128 libraries worldwide
"This book provides a comprehensive and integrated approach to management strategy that is based on economics. A basic introductory strategy text that integrates economic analysis with management strategy, it takes into account global competition and high-tech (Internet) developments, and recognizes that companies today can no longer expect to sustain competitive advantage but must rely on innovation (of products, processes, and transactions). Although many of the principles are illustrated with numerical examples, the text does not require a background course in economics or mathematics, and does not contain technical graphs or equations. Thus, the book is suitable for undergraduate managerial economics and strategy courses, as well as for introductory MBA courses in business strategy and as a companion to case studies."--Book cover

Menu costs and the neutrality of money by Andrew Caplin( Book )
5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
A model of endogenous price adjustment under money growth is presented. Firms follow (s, S) pricing policies and price revisions are imperfectly synchronized. In the aggregate, price stickiness disappears and money is neutral. The connection between firm price adjustment and relative price variability in the presence of monetary growth is also investigated. The results contrast with those obtained in models with exogenous fixed timing of price adjustment

Market microstructure and incentives to invest ( Article )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Market organization significantly affects total output and incentives for firms to invest. I compare three types of market organization. in a market with search and random matching, total output is excessive and there are incentives for inefficient underinvestment. In a market with a monopoly dealer, total output is insufficient and underinvestment also occurs. competition between the search market and the dealer market improves incentives to invest, and competition between dealers yields efficient total output and investment. this suggest that additional entry of wholesalers and other interbusinness dealers should stimulate aggregate business investment
