Imagine how much easier your life and livelihood would be if leading experts placed guidance and insights about regulatory polices at your fingertips four times a year. That’s what Regulation does. For three decades, it has examined every market, from agriculture to health and transportation, and nearly every government intervention, from interstate commerce regulation to labor law and price controls. And, it is expansive—casting a powerful light onto the overall impact of regulatory polices to give you sharp, comprehensive perspectives; and, precise—exploring key subjects with incisive, point-by-point analysis.
Further, each issue’s articles, crafted by national authorities at the cutting edge of regulatory reform, are written in clear, unambiguous terms that can be immediately understood and applied to your individual needs. With contributions from the nation’s top economists, policy analysts, and legal experts, Regulation guarantees the objective, in-depth analysis you need to stay on top of regulatory and economic policymaking in Washington, D.C.
Published since 1977, Regulation was started by the American Enterprise Institute and acquired by the Cato Institute in 1989. Past editors include Murray Weidenbaum and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia; Walter Olson and Peter Huber; Christopher C. DeMuth, the current president of the American Enterprise Institute; and William Niskanen (1933-2011), chairman of the Cato Institute. Peter Van Doren-a former professor at Princeton and Yale-has edited the magazine since 1999.
Read William Niskanen’s (1933-2011) retrospective on the 25th anniversary of Regulation.
Regulation adheres to the highest academic and design standards. Every article passes the strict scrutiny of the editors. Although articles are written by economists, political scientists, and law professors, they are always clear and accessible to the interested policymaker or lay reader. Teachers often find them useful in classrooms for providing a solid review of business and government.
