Commons Management and Infrastructure Pricing

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter addresses three complicated issues concerning commons management and infrastructure pricing. First, it examines how commons management interacts with different forms of price discrimination. Second, it considers the relationship between commons management and price regulation. Although nondiscrimination rules and price regulation may complement each other, particularly in the context of regulated monopolies, one does not necessitate the other. Finally, it focuses on infrastructure pricing and subsidies aimed at reducing prices to marginal cost.

Keywords: price discrimination; price regulation; price reduction; marginal cost
