Railroads have a good deal of rate freedom and motor trucking companies have much less regulation of entry and usually can price their services without interference by the ICC. These changes have not occurred in the other surface modes. The seven predictions of the proponents of deregulation as to what the probable consequences of these changes in regulation would be are discussed based upon what has actually happened in rail and motor truck transportation (as of mid-1986). The impact of regulatory reform has been influenced by the economic problems of the US in the late 1970's and early 1980's.-from Authors
