    • Abstract:
      The article discusses the trends in capital costs in the U.S. telecommunications industry through 1977. Approximately three quarters of the pretax margin expansion for most telecommunication carriers in the first half of 1976 was a function of interest and depreciation declining as a percent of revenues. A reduction in incremental margin benefits from capital costs is projected in 1977.
