Economists on the Welfare State and the Regulatory State: Why Don't Any Argue in Favor of One and Against the Other?

Economists on the Welfare State and the Regulatory State

Tuesday, October 13, 2015 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM
Mercatus Center, Freedom, Property, and Prosperity Conference Rooms

The welfare state and the regulatory state are two policy areas that rarely elicit converging positions, but is it possible to find an economist who defies this pattern? In the January 2015 issue of ECon Journal Watch, Chief Editor Daniel Klein has prompted contributors and scholars to consider why so few economists argue in favor of one and against the other, and whether they can think of some economists who have done so.
