Regulation and investment in network industries: Evidence from European telecoms

Journal of Law and Economics 55 (1): 189–216
Abstract:
Subject(s): Economics, politics and business environment
Keyword(s): telecommunications, access regulation, unbundling, investment
JEL Code(s): C51, L59, L96

We provide evidence of an inherent trade-off between access regulation and investment incentives in telecommunications by using a comprehensive data set covering 70+ fixed-line operators in 20 countries over 10 years. Our econometric model accommodates: different investment incentives for incumbents and entrants; a strategic interaction of entrants' and incumbents' investments; and endogenous regulation. We find access regulation to negatively affect both total industry and individual carrier investment. Thus promoting market entry by means of regulated access undermines incentives to invest in facilities-based competition. Moreover, we find evidence of a regulatory commitment problem: higher incumbents' investments encourage provision of regulated access.

Corporate social responsibility and competitive advantage: Overcoming the trust barrier

Management Science 57 (9): 1528–1545
Shuili Du, CB Bhattacharya, Sankar Sen (2011)
Abstract:
Subject(s): Strategy and general management
Keyword(s): corporate social responsibility, competitive strategy, challenger brand, affective trust

This research builds on the complementary corporate social responsibility (CSR) literatures in strategy and marketing to provide insight into the efficacy of CSR as a challenger's competitive weapon against a market leader. Through an investigation of a real world CSR initiative, we show that the challenger can reap superior business returns among consumers who had participated in its CSR initiative, relative to those who were merely aware of the initiative. Specifically, participant consumers demonstrate the desired attitudinal and behavioral changes in favor of the challenger, regardless of their affective trust in the leader, whereas aware consumers' reactions become less favorable as their affective trust in the leader increases. Furthermore, participation, unlike mere awareness, transforms the nature of the consumer-challenger relationship from a transactional one to a communal, trust-based one.
