Principle 8

We argue for the break up of unnatural monopolies, created by political or regulatory decree. Where natural monopolies exist, we advocate regulation that is mandated to protect the interests of consumers.

The Principle in Practice:

  • A competitive electricity supply sector with equitable access to regulated grids gives consumers choice and leads to a more reliable and cost effective, decentralized power system. Probe advocates this at home and abroad. In the Mekong region, our analysis has been adopted by grassroots environmental and civil rights groups as they campaign to save their vital watershed from being dammed.
