Abstract

This paper presents empirical evidence regarding the effect of endogenous deregulation on productivity. We find that treating deregulation across OECD countries as an exogenous event overestimates the competitive impact of deregulation on productivity by as much as 40%.

Keywords: Deregulation, Telecommunications, Political economy
