Gilder as Charged


Over at Tech Central Station self-styled tech guru George Gilder gets smacked around for his backing of the regional Bell systems in their disputes with the FCC.

Laurence Kotlikoff notes that it makes no sense to suppose that the Bells will ever make new investments in equipment or lower their prices if they are granted monopoly status in their local markets.

Kotlikoff consults for AT&T, so we know his anti-Bell feelings up front. The Bell apologists in the telecom policy field should also be as forthcoming.
