Two interesting discussions of current US communications policy:

  • Is the U.S. Dancing to a Different Drummer?, Communications & Strategies, no. 60, 4th quarter 2005 from former FCC staffer Scott Marcus, provides an analysis of recent US telecom policies and demonstrates how they are at odds with current European policies founded on economic theory.

  • Communications Policy For 2006 And Beyond, former members of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Reed E. Hundt and Gregory L. Rosston propose sweeping changes to the current US telecommunications regulatory regime. With impending reform in telecommunications laws, they argue that an important first step is the creation of a bipartisan, independent commission to examine and recommend implementation of more market-oriented communications policy.
