Example text

Crozier, Michl (1964) The Bureaucratic Phenomenon, University of Chicago Press, Chicago, IL. David, P. A. (1993) Path dependence and predictability in dynamic systems with local network externalities: a paradigm for historical economics. In Foray, Dominique and Freeman, Christopher (eds) Technology and the Wealth of Nations, Pinter, London. Di Maggio, Paul and Powell, Walter W. (1991) The iron cage revisited: institutional isomorphism and collective rationality in organizatanalysisional fields.

Di Maggio and Powell (1991) point out three mechanisms through which institutional isomorphic change occurs: mimetic, coercive and normative isomorphism. Changes in regulatory regimes may occur as mimetic processes, where changes in relevant reference nations act as a signal to change, perhaps in response to uncertainty. When regulatory technologies are poorly understood, when goals are ambiguous, or when the environment creates symbolic uncertainty, states may model their regulatory regimes on other states.

The non-nuclear power stations were shared out very carefully on the basis of the fuels used and the location, so that neither of the two generators had a significant advantage in its cost base. However, the Magnox plant had very little operating life left and massive liabilities for decommissioning and spent-fuel disposal, and the AGRs then showed little sign of becoming reliable generators of power. For the future, the higher rate of return required by private markets (now estimated to be more than 12% real per annum) compared to that required from state-owned companies by government (during privatisation raised from 5% to 8%) seemed likely to make new nuclear power stations uncompetitive.
