Electricity Deregulation After Enron
PFF to Hold Conference at National Press Club

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Enron presented itself as a poster-child for electricity deregulation, and it is therefore not surprising that its collapse has led many to conclude electricity deregulation has been a failure to date, and should be discontinued (or even reversed) in the future. But was Enron really a force for deregulation, or – as some are now arguing – an advocate of a special brand of re-regulation designed to serve its own particular interests? And what, in any case, does Enron’s fall imply for the future of electricity policy? Those are the issues that will be debated and discussed at a noon Progress & Freedom Foundation Seminar on February 6.
