Editorial Reviews

Review

"The heritage of James Tobin is well represented by this outstanding volume. The authors analyze the relations of government and the market from many different angles, showing the fallacies of simple critiques on the basis of deep scholarship." - Kenneth J. Arrow, Stanford University

"Pointing the way beyond simplistic capture theories of regulation, these essays illustrate how institutionally informed analysis can help to rebuild a constructive relationship between governments and markets." - Tom Baker, University of Pennsylvania Law School

"A deeply distinguished multidisciplinary gathering lays out new directions and bold challenges for regulatory theory and practice. The hope and promise of this work is for a more civilized and creative capitalism." - John Braithwaite, Australian National University

"A crisis has rekindled widespread interest in regulation. This collection of articles by outstanding social scientists and historians offers striking insights and fresh perspectives. Scholars and policymakers alike will benefit from their insightful and incisive discussions." - Bruce Carruthers, Northwestern University

"Governments and Markets is an engaging and ambitious rethinking of the role of regulation in the twenty-first century. The range of ideas and arguments throughout this volume will push readers to revisit their assumptions about regulatory activity and will push fellow scholars to refocus their research agendas to topics such as regulatory decision making and design. Combining strong research with contemporary relevance, the book will be of interest to both new students of public policy and long-standing experts." - Mark Stephan, Washington State University, Vancouver
