Editorial Reviews

Review

"Does Regulation Kill Jobs? provides a balanced perspective with novel insights about the connection between regulation and jobs. Offering new evidence that regulation generally causes little or no net change in national employment, the book nevertheless makes a compelling case for the need to incorporate job impacts more fully into decisions about specific regulations."—Adriana Kugler, Professor and Vice-Provost, Georgetown University, and former Chief Economist of the U.S. Department of Labor



"Does Regulation Kill Jobs? provides an outstanding analysis of what has become the most salient issue for regulatory policy in the wake of the Great Recession."—John D. Graham, Dean, Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs and former Administrator, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs



"This superb book answers the important question posed by its title in a careful and highly nuanced manner: regulations do not 'kill' jobs in the cataclysmic ways sometimes implied in today's shrill political debate, but they do at times have impacts on employment that can affect workers' well-being and should be taken into account in order to make better regulatory decisions."—Richard L. Revesz, Lawrence King Professor of Law and Dean Emeritus, New York University School of Law



"Few public policy choices are more difficult than those involving the regulation of the private sector. Compliance can be expensive, perhaps leading to a loss in both jobs and productivity, but regulation can also generate important benefits, such as safer workplaces and products. Does Regulation Kill Jobs? offers important guidance for making difficult regulatory tradeoffs and sorting through competing persuasive arguments. Drawing on work by eminent scholars and practitioners, this excellent book should be required reading for every member of Congress and every state legislator, as well as for the men and women in government agencies who draft rules."—Former U.S. Representative Mickey Edwards
