Abstract

This is a book about prices. The reader may be astonished that pricing can be seen as the central problem of public enterprises. But why should prices of railways, of postal services, of local public utilities, or of nationalized enterprises be of less importance than prices of private enterprises? Pricing of publicly supplied goods is the primary vehicle for embedding public enterprises adequately into a market economy.
