Apropos Peter Klein’s article today, this past week, economists Arnold Kling, Tyler Cowen, and Greg Mankiw independently weighed in on the issue of ‘net neutrality.’ In addition, today’s edition of the WSJ has an editorial from Steve Forbes taking this “ominous regulation” to task.
Because very few libertarian and even fewer economic-centered outlets have discussed this issue, below is a mini-symposium of other articles on the subject:
– The Spectrum Should Be Private Property, Mises.org
– Who Owns the Internet?, Mises.org
– Terminating Net Neutrality, Mises.org
– Network Nationalization: Net Neutrality In Action, Mises.org
– Stuck in Neutral, WSJ
– What Congress Is Learning About ‘Net Neutrality’, WSJ
– The Web’s Worst New Idea, WSJ
– Neutrality Check, WSJ
– Should the Net be Neutral, WSJ
– Neutral Net? Who Are You Kidding?, Wired News
– Hardware firms oppose Net neutrality laws, CNET News.com
– New Net neutrality plan may ruffle feathers, CNET News.com
– Taking Sides on ‘Net Neutrality’, LA Times
– Network neutrality? Welcome to the stupid Internet, The Mercury News
Furthermore, telecom analyst Scott Cleland and journalist Declan McCullagh have excellent commentary of this issue on their blogs. And lastly, network guru Martin Geddes gave a good speech which succinctly highlights the seen and unseen of this issue: Freedom to Connect.
