The Dictionary fills this void in a attainable quantity that describes all proper fiscal eponyms. a few infrequent yet fascinating eponyms also are integrated, many entries are cross-referenced and all have a succinct bibliography for additional studying.

Example text

Hence there is at least one consumer for which the value of consumption at the rearrangement is not higher than income at equilibrium. Because the equilibrium consumption for this consumer is no worse than any other affordable consumption we conclude that the rearrangement is not an improvement for her. Under convexity assumptions there is a converse result, known as the second welfare theorem: every Pareto optimum can be sustained as a competitive equilibrium after a lump-sum transfer of income.

Finally, administrative and legal authorizations can also impose a different cost on new entrants vis-à-vis the incumbent monopolies. In all these cases, eliminating the control of monopoly prices will not lead to efficiency prices. Actually the overwhelming presence of economical, technical and legal barriers to entry in industries formerly organized as monopolies, such as power, natural gas, water or telecommunications, makes almost ineffective the application of the theory of contestable markets to regulatory action in order to suppress price controls.

Otherwise the monopoly would put in danger its continuity as the only firm in the market. In the case where the monopolist chose to raise prices and to obtain extraordinary profits, other investors or firms would consider entering the market to capture all or part of the profits. Under the threat of such a contest, the monopolist prefers to maintain prices close to costs, renouncing extraordinary benefits, but ensuring its permanence as a monopoly without competitors. The consequence of the theory of contestable markets is that regulating by ignoring control of prices and attending only to the raising of all the barriers to entry is effective in achieving efficiency prices.
