Catie Hausman, Michigan Ford School of Public Policy presents: "Shock Value: Bill Smoothing and Sticky Prices in Utility Retail Rates" Wholesale natural gas prices vary tremendously as a result of supply-side shocks such as fracking and demand-side shocks such as unusual winter weather. In this paper, I examine how natural gas utilities respond to these cost shocks. Because distributors must cover both gas costs as well as large capital costs, the typical utility uses two-part tariffs. I show that marginal…

Today, the notion that “institutions matter” is broadly accepted. Scholars have generated a rich literature on the causes and effects of institutions spanning from the micro to the macro level. The pioneering work of Buchanan, Coase, North, Ostrom, Williamson, and many others is the fertile soil in which the literature in Institutional and Organizational Analysis (IOA) has taken root and blossomed. There is a wealth of institutional scholarship that now spans disciplines, decades, and continents.
