Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Peter C. Cramton, University of Maryland - Department of Economics, Evan Kwerel, Gregory L. Rosston, Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, and Andrzej Skrzypacz, Stanford Graduate School of Business advocate Using Spectrum Auctions to Enhance Competition in Wireless Services.
