Aims & Scope
『Regulatory Study』 is an academic journal published by the Korea Society for Regulatory Studies and aims to revitalize research on regulatory reform to create a market economy. By providing a venue for academic research related to regulation through this journal, research in the field of government regulation can be deepened, awareness of the necessity and importance of regulatory research can be spread to the academic community, and meaningful policy proposals for regulatory management can be made.   The scope of 『Regulatory Study』 is related to the development and diffusion of regulatory theories, verification of the effectiveness of regulatory policies, research on developing regulatory management tools, and in-depth understanding of market economy. Other studies on the relationship between policies and markets, such as studies on the impact of various government policies on the market economy, can be the subject of this study.   Therefore, studies related to the above topics are subject to review and publication in this journal, and the editorial committee expects these studies to be actively sumitted to the journal.

    This study examines the effects of handset subsidy regulation on mobile carriers’ profits, consumer surplus, and social welfare. I consider three cases of regulating handset subsidies. The first case is when excess subsidies are permitted. The second case is when the subsidy cap is set. The third case is when the subsidy regulation is abolished. Considering two carriers competing in subsidies in existing and new markets, I show that the carriers’ profits are highest in the first case. If competition in a new market is sufficiently intense and the subsidy cap is sufficiently high, then consumer surplus is highest in the second case. Otherwise, it is highest in the third case. Social welfare is highest in the second case. The results suggest that from the viewpoint of social welfare, setting a subsidy cap may be effective. If the objective of policy is to increase consumer surplus, the regulatory agency needs to consider the level of competition in a new market and the subsidy cap.

    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this paper is to prove that the current CSAP acts as an entry regulation, increasing the opportunity cost in the national socio-economic environment. To this end, the socio-economic benefits that arise from improving CSAP were evaluated and measured. In particular, it was intended to confirm the practical benefits of opening to global cloud service providers (CSPs) in the public and medical fields. The socio-economic benefits of introducing cloud services in the public and medical sectors were evaluated and measured in terms of flexibility & cost efficiency, stability, service diversity, and innovation. As a result of evaluation and measurement, the total socio-economic benefit that would occur when cloud services were introduced in the public and medical fields was 4,197 billion won + 2ɑ. However, there were no theoretical studies or practical examples of related indicators in the analysis of the socioeconomic benefits of introducing cloud services in the public and medical fields, so a proxy had to be used. As a result, there remains a limitation that there is inevitably an error in estimating benefits. Nevertheless, this study is significant in that it attempted to estimate the quantitative effect in the absence of studies related to the socio-economic benefit analysis of the introduction of cloud services in the public and medical sectors. In addition, this study shows that the current CSAP is acting as an entry regulation for global CSPs, resulting in socio-economic opportunity costs.
