The New Regulatory Finance: Utilities Cost of Capital



Updated and published in 2006, New Regulatory Finance is an invaluable text for economists, accountants, CFOs, attorneys, regulators, or anyone involved in capital-related decisions. Written by a preeminent professor of finance who has testified on corporate finance and cost-of-capital issues before numerous regulatory agencies, the book reflects on the changes in the utility industry and associated impacts on capital markets.
