about

What do phone rates, frequent flyer programs, and railroad tariffs all have in common? They are all examples of nonlinear pricing. Pricing is nonlinear when it is not strictly proportional to the quantity purchased. The Electric Power Research Institute has commissioned Robert Wilson to reviewthe various facets of nonlinear pricing. The work starts with a general non-mathematical discussion, followed by a more technical presentation intended for readers with a fairly advanced background. Thorough and detailed, this study has ample examples of case studies from a variety ofindustries.

Thorough and detailed, this study has ample examples of case studies from a variety of industries".Anyone interested in pricing in imperfectly competitive and regulated markets can learn a great deal from Nonlinear Pricing. It will be a standard advanced text and reference for years to come....Nonlinear Pricing has increased both economists' understanding of nonlinear tariffs and practitioners' ability to implement them in a variety of settings. Like other important and enduring works, Nonlinear Pricing poses questions no less interesting than those it answers". -- Journal of Pol
