George Stigler, 50 Years Later
To mark the 50-year anniversary of I-House alumnus George Stigler’s seminal piece, “The Theory of Economic Regulation” ProMarket is publishing a new eBook examining his theory’s past, present, and future as part of the Stigler Center’s George Stigler 50 Years Later symposium.
