The structural effects of state regulation of retail fluid milk prices

Abstract

Notes the announced and implied objectives of state retail fluid milk price regulation. Application of the Chamberlinian monopolistic competition model will aid in heuristically contrasting unregulated and regulated equilibria. Empirically, a simultaneous equations model will be used to study the effects of regulation upon performance and structure of the industry. Further, an estimate of the social cost of regulation will be deduced from the empirical results. The implications for public policy are presented. -Authors
