Can we concentrate on results? I would say YES, as the knowledge required to decide that the decade old debate between great scams and the apparently lesser and more familiar customer wallet cleaning have been over has been available for more than a year.

Dear Prof. Banks, Dr. Rozenman, and other important and intelligent writers and readers,
I have learned a lot from the contributions (and to complete my research to address their inquiries) of Prof. Banks to Mr. Gould, which have accompanied me in this process for almost two years. By the same token, I have also learned a lot from others no so regular interactions with other intelligent and important writers.
I am sorry that sometimes I have been rude in some of my posts, but it is difficult for me to be as diplomatic as required. Thank you for understanding my apologies.
To go forward, I pose to all readers and writers the following question: Can we concentrate on results?
With a lot of respect, I understand that the historic processes are very important, interesting and useful, but even more important and useful, not necessarily interesting, are the results. I submit that these are the results:
1) Vertical integration regulation: wallet cleaning for customers that don’t need the average offers in their customer class.
2) Economy first, reliability second, (E1R2) deregulation: great scams, as documented by Prof. Banks.
3) Reliability first, economy second, EWPC (R1E2) re-regulation: the solution, that has recently emerged to both the customer wallet cleaning and the great scams problems, is for every end-customers to be able to choose the best service plan of the many available in the market, that will result from business model innovations without price controls under competition and prudential regulations. Great leadership is required to get EWPC implemented.
In the presentation A Generative Dialogue to Reach the End-State of the Power Industry (please hit link to download the presentation), I humbly suggested in March 2006, at Carnegie Mellon University that what is needed to go forward is to concentrate in the generative dialogue to introduce the transformation from today's situation to the end-state of the industry for quite some time, by adopting the EWPC winning market architecture and design.
In the post A Generative Dialogue Without Illusions Part 1, I introduced some of Adam Kahane’s ideas about generative dialogues.
Repeating, the question is: Can we concentrate on results? I would say YES, as the knowledge required to decide that the decade old debate between great scams and the apparently lesser and more familiar customer wallet cleaning have been over has been available for more than a year.
