There is a new article/interview on news.com Gerald R. Faulhaber, a professor of public policy and management at Wharton who was last month was named chief economist of the Federal Communications Commission.

Very interesting:

He thinks that it might be good to have other foreign companies come to the US to start some of their services in the US to help out.

What I found very interesting is that he also said that in the not too far future we will not pay for voice calls. Coupled with what the Mobilcom chief in germany said a while back, that UMTS might lead to free voice calls, this gets very interesting indeed. It is all bits and bytes and voice is really very little bandwidth.
