THE MARKET DOMINANCE TEST: THE 1976 ACT'S NEW APPROACH TO RAILROAD RATE REGULATION

With passage of the Railroad Revitalization and Regulatory Reform Act of 1976, the U.S. has embarked on an experiment in reduced railroad regulation. If utilized creatively and responsibly, the greater freedom now accorded railroads in their rate setting can work to their advantage and ultimately can benefit users. Whether the opportunity will be fully exploited depends largely on the ability of railroads, shippers and the Interstate Commerce Commission to adapt to new ways and to permit this experiment in transport policy to be fairly tested.
