Aviation Deregulation – Who’s Benefiting?

How did deregulation impact the airline industry? Did it make the consumer better or worse off?

Deregulation is a public policy concept that appears to support Adam Smith’s invisible hand metaphor, advising against government meddling in the free exchange of information, planning, cooperation, and production of commodities and services. However, Smith recognized the need for secure contracts and other police protections (regulations), fundamental to any social enterprise. In this seminar, Dr. Marty Rowland addresses the following question – What was the consumer’s experience prior to and after the deregulation wave in the aviation industry? Did this popular philosophy bear out its promises, or was deception part of the package all along?

    Join us for an interactive book presentation webinar on the Progressive Era.

    In this special webinar, Professor Guillaume Vallet will introduce his newly published work “Inequalities and the Progressive Era – Breakthroughs and Legacies”, featuring contributions from many authors, each exploring a facet of inequality during the ‘Progressive Era’ (1890s-1930s). Though it is most associated with the United States, the “Progressive Era” corresponds to a vibrant historical period in which profound changes and progress were achieved or expected all over the world.


    Guillaume Vallet is an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Grenoble Alpes, and Research Fellow at the Centre de Recherche en Économie de Grenoble (CREG) and the Institut de Recherche pour l’Economie Politique de l’Entreprise (IREPE), France. Guillaume is also a researcher at the Geneva based Institute of Sociological Research (ISR).
