This course will explore the issues of regulation using tools of microeconomic theory, law and economics and public choice. By the end of the course students should have a familiarity with the application of microeconomic theory to the major issues in regulation including antitrust, traditional public utility regulation, and current proposals to alter the regulatory landscape and deregulation and re-regulation. Students will study major papers in the field of regulation to gain a better understanding of these issues. Students will synthesize this learning into a major research paper due on the last day of class.
