Summary note
Abstract: The government's role in establishing and enforcing regulatory policy and processes is discussed. The best solution to each problem raised by regulatory proposals can be found only afer all of the facts are examined. Major issues include: markets and regulation (which discusses the regulatory process and examines the economic and social performance goals that competition, regulation, and governmental techniques expect to achieve); regulatory justifications (which examines technical efficiency and welfare efficiency, complex problems with no single solution); equity (realms of values); and the politics of regulations (which examines legislation; administration, and reform). (kbc).
