Most widely held works by J. Gregory Sidak
Toward competition in local telephony by William J Baumol( Book )
15 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 547 libraries worldwide
The American Enterprise Institute's Studies in Telecommunications Deregulation present new research on telecommunications policy, with particular emphasis on reforms of federal and state regulatory policies that will advance rather than inhibit innovation and consumer welfare. AEI has commissioned more than twenty-five distinguished experts in law, economics, and engineering to write monographs on regulatory issues in telephony, cable television, broadcasting, information services, and other communications technologies
Deregulatory takings and the regulatory contract : the competitive transformation of network industries in the United States by J. Gregory Sidak( Book )
17 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and Italian and held by 451 libraries worldwide
In this book J. Gregory Sidak and Daniel F. Spulber address deregulatory policies that threaten to reduce or destroy, without any offsetting payment of compensation, the value of private property in network industries. They term such policies "deregulatory takings." They further analyze the problem of the state's abrogation of its "regulatory contract" with private firms. They argue that constitutional projections of private property from takings, as well as efficient remedies for breach of contract, provide the proper foundation for the competitive transformation of network industries. Sidak and Spulber then derive the efficient price for the incumbent regulated firm to charge when the government compels it to sell access to its network to competitors
Foreign investment in American telecommunications by J. Gregory Sidak( Book )
12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 330 libraries worldwide
Restrictions on foreign investment in U.S. telecommunications firms have harmed the interests of American consumers and investors, argues J. Gregory Sidak in this convincing study. Sidak shows why these restrictions, originally intended to protect America from the perils of wireless telegraphy by foreign agents, should be repealed (rather than be retained almost unaltered as they were in the Telecommunications Act of 1996)
Protecting competition from the postal monopoly by J. Gregory Sidak( Book )
3 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 225 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
Transmission pricing and stranded costs in the electric power industry by William J Baumol( Book )
8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 220 libraries worldwide

7 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 11 libraries worldwide
"These articles, which were commissioned by the Brussels Round Table, a forum for leading EU communications operators and equipment manufacturers, comprise the first book to focus specifically on broadband in Europe. They examine the deployment of broadband and then use the analysis to make policy recommendations related to telecommunications regulation." "This volume will be of particular interest to telecommunications managers, policy makers, and scholars in schools of law, business, public policy, economics, communication, and engineering."--Jacket

Toward competition in cable television by Leland L Johnson( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
The monographs are written and edited to be immediately useful to legislators, jurists, and public officials at all levels of government - as well as to business executives and consumers, who must live with these policies. As such, the monographs will also find a place in courses on regulated industries and communications policy in economics and communications departments and in business, law, and public policy schools

What does the Chicago School teach about Internet search and the antitrust treatment of Google? by Robert H Bork( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Antitrust agencies in the United States and the European Union began investigating Google's search practices in 2010. Google's critics have consisted mainly of its competitors, particularly Microsoft, Yelp, TripAdvisor, and other search engines. They have alleged that Google is making it more difficult for them to compete by including specialized search results in general search pages and limiting access to search inputs, including "scale," Google content, and the Android platform. Those claims contradict real-world experiences in search. They demonstrate competitors' efforts to compete not by investing in efficiency, quality, or innovation, but by using antitrust law to punish the successful competitor. The Chicago School of law and economics teaches - and the Supreme Court has long affirmed - that antitrust law exists to protect consumers, not competitors. Penalizing Google's practices as anticompetitive would violate that principle, reduce dynamic competition in search, and harm the consumers that the antitrust laws are intended to protect."--Editor

Deregulatory takings and the regulatory contract : the competitive transformation of network industries in the United States by J. Gregory Sidak( file )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This 1998 book addresses deregulatory policies that threaten to reduce or destroy the value of private property in network industries without any accompanying payment of just compensation, policies that are termed 'deregulatory takings'. The authors further consider the problem of renegotiation of the regulatory contract, which changes the terms and conditions of operation of utility companies. They argue that constitutional protections of private property from takings, as well as efficient remedies for contractual breach, provide the proper foundation for the competitive transformation of the network industries. The benefits of competition do not stem from government regulations that redistribute income from utility investors to customers, nor do such benefits stem from regulatory policies for network access that promote free riding on incumbent facilities by entrants. Such actions represent a new version of increased regulation, not deregulation
The Future of the Postal Monopoly : American and European Perspectives after the Presidential Commission and Flamingo Industries by Damien Geradin( Article )
