This paper describes MLR in utility markets, explains how globalization drives MLR, and describes how MLR in turn causes firms to become even more global, as each firm strives to enter into markets further and further removed from its traditional markets. It first describes the industry transformations and market reforms, focusing on the telecommunications and energy industries. It then explains how governments are using competition to improve utility infrastructure.
