Professor Stuart Shapiro will discuss his new book, The Politcs of Regulatory Reform, co-authored with Bloustein School instructor Debra Borie-Holtz on Alan Colmes Radio on Wednesday, November 6 at 8:00 p.m. Listen live at http://radio.foxnews.com/category/talk/alan-colmes-talk-radio/
The book looks 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.
