The GW Regulatory Studies Center scholars regularly host and participate in events on regulatory policy. Their expertise is also featured in op-eds, and reports in leading media outlets.
The GW Regulatory Studies Center commemorates the 40th anniversary of surface freight deregulation with three panel discussions featuring firsthand accounts from individuals involved in the reforms and assessment from scholars who studied their effects. Two moderated panel discussions – one describing how regulatory reform happened, and the other describing its effects – are pre-recorded and available for viewing. A third discussion session brings back all of the panelists for a live online session in which audience members can pose questions to the panelists.
Susan Dudley's column in Forbes!
Without a Democratic majority in the Senate, President-elect Biden may not be able to achieve policy goals through legislation, but, as long as he has a pen, he can accomplish a lot with presidential directives.
While we don’t know the outcome of Tuesday’s election, the Biden team must be considering their options for reversing Trump regulatory actions if they win the White House. Here’s a roadmap to a regulatory reset.
Fact checking President Trump’s deregulatory claims: Behind the puffery lies some truth.
A dynamic post-pandemic requires thoughtful evaluation to be sure regulations are achieving their goals without needlessly burdening the workers, consumers, small businesses and entrepreneurs who comprise a thriving society. Here are recommendations for emerging from the pandemic with strength.
As the world struggles to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, short-term policies should focus on generating much-needed information. The longer term focus should be on policies that make society more resilient and able to respond to a range of future challenges, whether they are anticipated or not.
DOT's rule on rules provides a rare window into the inner workings of the department’s rulemaking procedures. It also codifies regulatory practices and analytical principles that, while accepted across different presidencies, have heretofore not been legally enforceable.
Two new executive orders on agency use of guidance lend presidential weight to a longstanding issue. Implementation of the orders will need to strike the right balance between ensuring transparency and adequate notice of agency policy without quashing valuable information sharing with the public.
Professor Paul Rubin’s thoughtful and engaging new book, The Capitalism Paradox, explores why many Americans reject capitalism, despite strong evidence linking free economies to human well-being. It turns out that economists’ focus on competition rather than cooperation may be partly to blame.
Switching from more-constraining forms of regulations to forms that are productivity-neutral or even productivity-enhancing can achieve policy goals at lower social cost.
The Business Roundtable’s new report documents how overlapping regulatory jurisdiction can impede innovation and economic growth. But it would be a mistake to conclude that national regulatory uniformity is the only solution. Sometimes, regulatory competition may yield better societal results.

Science-based regulations suffer both from "politicized science" and "scientized policy." Institutional change to clarify the basis for policy decisions would improve scientific analysis, regulatory analysis, and the policies themselves. That was a broad theme of a workshop on Improving Science-Based Regulation hosted by the George Washington University Regulatory Studies Center and Center for Risk Science and Public Health on January 13, 2012. The workshop brought together participants with a wide range of experience and expertise in risk assessment, regulatory economics, law, public policy, engineering, and scientific philosophy to examine the relationship between science and policy as they are used in developing regulations. Four working papers, authored by Art Fraas and Randall Lutter, George Gray, Adam Finkel, and Henry Miller, with kick-off comments by Anne Smith, Michael Livermore, David Goldston, and Richard Belzer, helped shape the discussion. We present highlights of the papers and discussions here.
