Example text

Despite its theoretical accuracy, no regulator has seriously suggested putting a price on uncompleted calls.  The growth of competition in long distance will tend to force prices in this direction.  Most proponents of this view will agree that the actual distribution of access costs to these other services is arbitrary, but they promote minutes of peak usage as a reasonable distributional criterion.  Advocates of this view also argue that toll calls should contribute to the recovery of NTS costs.

Organized consumer interests and the political pressure of competitors and large users, often spurred on by technological changes, led to S falling closer to 1, which made deregulation possible (although not inevitable) in some industries and in some jurisdictions where enough of the "supply­push" elements were in place.  The coalition against price changes includes small consumers, who may be inattentive prior to actual changes except for government­funded advocates, and potential competitors, who are more powerful in telecommunications regulation than normally perceived.

And How much discretion do institutional actors develop and retain after political coalitions establish them and interest group power changes?  The choices regulators make are shaped by the actors to whom they are most accountable, their degree of understanding of complicated issues, which is partly a function of their resources such as staff and budget, and the commissioners' backgrounds and attitudes towards regulation.  Regulators might develop different definitions and understandings of the issues depending on those to whom they are directly accountable and on the resources available.
