Therefore, the regulator sets price above marginal cost when the firm claims to have high marginal cost in order to reduce the number of units of output (Q(pH )) on which the firm can exercise its cost advantage. In contrast, when the variation in fixed cost ΔF exceeds Δc Q(cL ), the binding incentive problem for the regulator is to prevent the firm from exaggerating its fixed cost via understating its marginal cost. To mitigate the firm’s incentive to understate c, part (iii) of Proposition 2 shows that the regulator sets pL below cL .
Ch. 27: Recent Developments in the Theory of Regulation 1565 product i, and let p = (p1 , . . , pn ) denote the corresponding vector of prices. Further, let v(p) denote aggregate consumer surplus and π(p) denote the monopolist’s profit with price vector p. The important difference between the analysis here and in the remainder of Section 2 is that the regulator knows the functions v(·) and π(·) perfectly here. 1. Setting where transfers are feasible Consider first the setting where the regulator is able to make transfer payments to the regulated firm and receive transfers from the firm.
Specifically, the analysis is extended to allow the regulator to acquire better information about the regulated industry, to allow the firm’s private information to be multi-dimensional, and to allow for the possibility that the regulator is susceptible to capture by the industry (the sixth factor listed above). 5 reviews how optimal regulatory policy changes when the interaction between the regulator and firm is repeated over time. Optimal regulatory policy is shown to vary systematically according to the regulator’s ability to make credible commitments to future policy (the seventh factor cited above).
