Today Senior Economist Anna Möller will present a paper arguing that the ambitions of the Postal Directive are too high with regard to regulatory accounts required from postal universal service providers. At present, regulatory accounts do not allow regulators and competition authorities to meet the requirements contained in the Directive.
In order to meet their regulatory objectives, national authorities have to adjust the requirements on regulatory accounts and/or use additional sources of information.
CRRI (Center for Research in Regulated Industries) is located at Rutgers University and aims to further study of regulation by research in economics, finance, and institutions. CRRI has held 20 conferences and 3 workshop on postal economics and policy since 1990, and has been honored for its work in the area of postal and delivery economics by the European Express Organization.
