Chapter XII of the National Resources Committee''s December 1935 report Regional Factors in National Planning and Developmentbore the title "A Preliminary Exploration of Regionalism." It reported the findings of a questionnaire sent to a dozen social scientists, ten of them geographers and two sociologists. The respondents were asked three sets of questions about the nature, delineation, and use of regions; their responses were summarized and generously excerpted. The stated goal of the exercise was to draw on expert opinon to dispel some of the "vagueness of thinking" that seemed to prevail whenever the term "region" was used.

In many respects these challenges are similar to those in other network industries in providing a balance between regulation and markets, public investment and private risk taking, coordination and competition. As with other such industries, naturally monopoly elements interact with potentially competitive services, but electricity has some unusual features that defy simple analogy to other network industries.
