ENERGY COMPANIES AND MARKET REFORM: HOW DEREGULATION
by Jeremiah D. Lambert
During the last two decades, deregulation and restructuring were widely expected to transform the nation’s energy industries, bringing
more competitive pricing and abundant, reliable energy to the public. Instead, consumers and investors in the post-Enron era have
suffered losses measured in the billions, attributable to market-rigging, accounting fraud, and business plans that were doomed to
failure. In this in-depth look at the latest era of greed, Jeremiah Lambert explains how the leaders of these companies schemed,
collaborated or ignored the obvious signs that signaled the oncoming failures of well-established energy companies.
A short history of deregulation • Corporate self-regulation: Form vs substance • Corporate self-regulation: The accountant as
gatekeeper • FERC’s shortfall as market regulator • The deregulated gas supply market • Implosion of the California electricity market--Part I • Implosion of the California electricity market--Part II • Market design • Changing the ground rules • Conclusion
