Looking Through the Infrastructure Lens: review of Brett M. Frischmann's Infrastructure - the social value of shared resources

Research output: Contribution to journalReview (Book/Film/Exhibition/etc.)

Abstract

This is a review of Brett M. Frischmann's "Infrastructure : the social value of shared resources" (2012). It is a rich book that neither ducks from challenging the disciplinary boundaries of economic theory nor from complex issues of spillover effects or hard-to-measure externalitites. Frischmann’s contribution includes the grand task of comparing and analysing the very much different types of infrastructures – transportations, telecommunications, environmental, intellectual – in terms of managing commons.
