The Captured Economy: How the Powerful Enrich Themselves, Slow Down Growth, and Increase Inequality

Grant Year: 2017


Brink Lindsey and Steven Teles will explore how interest groups capture the regulatory process in ways that can stifle economic growth and limit upward mobility. Building on the findings in their book, The Captured Economy: How the Powerful Enrich Themselves, Slow Down Growth, and Increase Inequality, they will identify examples of what they call “regressive regulation” and explore policy solutions to counteract it.
