Deregulation would unleash efficiencies and enhance U.S. spending and productivity growth, according to Robert Crandall, senior fellow, Brookings Institution, who will deliver the Tullock Lecture at Clemson University on Oct. 31.
Crandall, a renowned author and expert on the economics of government regulation, will speak from 4-5:30 p.m. in Memorial Auditorium of Tillman Hall. The Tullock Lecture on Big Ideas about Information is sponsored by the Information Economy Project.
Crandall, whose current research focuses on telecommunications policy, will review evidence showing how complex and costly health, safety and environmental regulation is thwarting job and income gains, while producing fewer benefits than are possible with better-crafted rules. He advocates for market-based incentives, including an approach that would replace the EPA’s Clean Power Plan with a carbon tax.
Crandall holds an M.S. and Ph.D. from Northwestern University, where he taught economics. He has also taught at MIT, Maryland, George Washington University and Stanford. He is the author of several books including, with Cliff Winston and Vikram Maheshri, First Thing We Do: Let’s Deregulate All the Lawyers (Washington, D.C.: Brookings, 2011).
A reception and refreshments will follow the lecture.
