My early work concentrated in public utility pricing, particularly in cross-subsidization. My 1975 article (No. 1 above) rigorously defended the concept of cross-subsidies in pricing, and explored its welfare, equity and incentive implications. The 1981 article (No.
6 above) completed my Doctor of Philosophy research by examining the relationship between cross-subsidy among
products and cross-subsidy among groups of consumers. My work in the
1976-1980 period was devoted to nonuniform pricing and economic policy issues in telecommunications, an industry in the throes of change at that time. More recently, my interests have broadened to include the entire service sector.
My current efforts are in the area of the economics of reputation.
