Introducing Guest Blogger Hal Singer

Geoffrey Manne —  17 October 2011

We’re delighted to be joined for the next couple of weeks by guest blogger, Hal Singer.

Hal is Managing Director and Principal at Navigant Economics. He has written, thought and advised extensively on antitrust, finance and general regulatory issues.  His SSRN page is here, and it includes co-authors like David Teece, Dan Rubinfeld, Jerry Hausman, Greg Sidak, Bob Crandall, and Bob Litan, among many others. He is the co-author of the book Broadband in Europe: How Brussels Can Wire the Information Society (Kluwer/Springer Press 2005). and his article have appeared in, among there, American Economics Association Papers and Proceedings, Harvard Journal of Law and Technology, Journal of Industrial Economics, Journal of Network Industries, Journal of Regulatory Economics, Review of Network Economics, Topics in Economic Analysis and Policy, and Yale Journal on Regulation. He has also served as Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business.

On the policy front, his essays have appeared in several leading newspapers and magazines, including Antitrust, Forbes, The Economist’s Voice, Harvard Business Review, Health Affairs, The Milken Institute Review, Regulation, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post. His M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in economics are from the Johns Hopkins University and his B.S. magna cum laude in economics is from Tulane University.

Perhaps of particular interest to our readers, one of Hal’s most recent articles (with Gerald Faulhaber) is on wireless broadband competition and the FCC’s most recent wireless competition report, a not-uncommon subject around here (see, e.g., here).  It’s an excellent paper, and you can find a link to the article and a podcast of Hal discussing the paper with Jerry Brito here.

We look forward to a stimulating set of posts from Hal — and he isn’t shy, so don’t hesitate to weigh in in the comments!
