dc.description.abstractThe paper starts with a description of major reforms of EU policy in the networkindustries. Based on the normative economics of regulation, it then points outgeneric information and transaction cost problems of regulatory policy making.An appropriate allocation of regulatory competencies may help mitigate theseproblems. Focusing on the ‘federal’ allocation of competencies it is argued thattraditional economic theories of federalism should be complemented bycontract-theoretic and transaction-cost-political approaches. There has been some progress in recent years in developing such a ‘new economic theory offederalism’. Basic ideas and some insights of this theory are discussed withregard to the appropriate ‘federal’ allocation of competencies for the regulationof the European network industries.-
