I'm thinking of airlines, for example. Deregulation has had a very mixed history there. I'm trying to think of an example where deregulation led to an increase in quality of goods or service -- except for a few really expensive executive flights on highly travelled routes, airline deregulation favored low cost suppliers. And, it's not clear air safety has improved as a result.
Any other examples?
