Shapiro, Borie-Holtz author “The Politics of Regulatory Reform”

October 24, 2013

politicsofregreform1Stuart Shapiro, associate professor and director of the Program in Public Policy, has authored book  with Bloustein School instructor Debra Borie-Holtz.  The book,  The Politcs of Regulatory Reformlooks at why federal and state politicians have been so eager to pass legislation making it harder for agencies to issue regulations.  Shapiro and Borie-Holtz conclude that these measures don’t do much to affect regulations but they do help politicians get credit with constituents for caring about regulations.

A more detailed summary of the book can be found at RegBlog.
