Description
Regulation, Economics and the Law presents a selection of the most important published articles on key issues arising in the design of social regulation. It focuses in particular on interventionist measures used to protect primarily the environment, health and safety and consumers. Professor Ogus uses both public interest and private interest theory to investigate and evaluate the legal forms and procedures.

The volume covers, on the one hand, traditional ‘command-and-control’ techniques, such as licensing and standards, and on the other, newer techniques, such as economic incentives and emissions trading. Rulemaking procedures, institutional structures and the impact of international competition are also considered.

Contents
17 articles, dating from 1961 to 1998 Contributors include: H. Beales, F.H. Easterbrook, D.R. Fischel, L.B. Lave, J.R. Macey, R.G. Noll, R.A. Posner, S. Shavell, C.R. Sunstein, T.H. Tietenberg
