Economic Analysis of Regulation

Grant Year: 2021

James Poterba and Steve Cicala will lead an effort to catalyze new thinking on how to assess the cumulative effects of regulation on key economic outcomes, including growth, new business formation, and employment. They will convene a working group of leading economists to assess what existing studies show about the cumulative costs of regulation, identify new sources of data and cutting-edge analytical techniques that could be used to analyze the effects of regulation, and examine key challenges to improving regulatory assessments. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers.
