Chapter 7 complements the previous analysis and explores consumers’ perceptions of price fairness and tests the correlation with the reforms. The estimation uses several waves of Eurobarometer data, a large cross-country yearly survey sponsored by the European Commission. This analysis is conducted for all three sectors considered in the above chapter: through a set of different empirical models. Some counter-intuitive results are found, which are broadly consistent with the objective evidence on price determinants. In countries that have embraced the reforms, after controlling for individual characteristics, consumers do not appear to be happier about the price they pay compared with consumers in the countries lagging behind.
