For years now, utilities, phones companies, and cable/Internet
providers have been deregulated, which, in theory, gives customers more
choices. However, many consumers still only have one choice when it
comes to their natural gas provider or cable/Internet provider. And
those who do have a choice tend to be faced with prices from two or more
companies that are near identical to each other. And neither is lower
than the prices before the deregulation, which is not what consumers
were expecting after being told the deregulated market would offer more
competitive prices. Explain why competition in these areas has not
lowered prices and how price fixing, competition, and government
regulation play a role.
Most countries in the modern world have some sort of letter mail
delivery system. The United States Postal Service is, by far, the most
efficient, affordable, reliable system in the world with every box in
the country being delivered every day of the 6-day delivery week. Not to
mention a first-class letter costs the same whether it is mailed next
door or across the country. Yet, many people feel the monopoly of the
USPS isn?t fair because there is no competition. If you want a letter
mailed for less than $1.00 the USPS is the only choice (other package
carriers can deliver letter mail, but the rates are much higher than the
monopolies are bad, why does the government insist on keeping this one
alive by blocking competition? What if the USPS decides to cut Saturday
delivery (as has been discussed every few years for the past 20 years)
or, due to a decline in mail volume, cuts delivery to 3 days per week.
Would the government still be able to justify a monopoly then? Or should
monopolies all be done away with? Explain your answer.
The sign on the beach reads ?$25 fine for littering.? A beach user
nonetheless tosses his used soda bottles on the sand rather than walk to
the distant trash barrel. He knows that the beach patrol has seen him
and will issue a citation, but he is very wealthy, and so places a very
low marginal value on money and a very high marginal value on time.
Would you call him a litterer if he were willing to pay the fine? Or has
he purchased the right to use the sand as a waste receptacle? What if
he littered on your private property? How does that change the
When you bought your house, only 5 commercial planes passed over it
daily, on average. That number has grown slowly and almost imperceptibly
over the intervening years, and now numbers 150. Is the change from 5
to 150 a drastic or radical change? Is your situation with 150 planes
flying over your house each day more tolerable because the number
increased slowly and imperceptibly? Would you be more likely to receive
compensation of some sort if the changes had occurred over a very short
period of time? Does the fact that we can?t tell which straw broke the
camel?s back mean that the addition of more straw to the camel?s burden
was not the cause of its broken back?
