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. It is based on a series of articles that previously appeared in ProMarket and, in a concluding piece, Filippo Lancieri and Luigi Zingales propose a test of whether a proposed regulation has been ‘captured’ by special interests or not by examining three ways that industries may influence regulators.
