Workshop – Open to the Public
Monday, September 16, 2013

1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2237
Washington, D.C.

Sustained, high levels of unemployment over the last several years have contributed to concern about the relationship between regulation and jobs. In this public workshop, the Penn Program on Regulation brings together scholars to discuss the connection between regulation and employment as well as to consider whether and how regulatory agencies might better analyze employment effects of new regulations.

The first panel, distilling the economic research on regulation’s impacts on jobs, will feature Joseph Aldy (Harvard University), Timothy J. Bartik (Upjohn Institute for Employment Research), and Keith Hall (George Mason University). The second panel will consider possibilities for improving the analysis of job effects of new regulations; it will feature Adam M. Finkel (University of Pennsylvania), Brian F. Mannix (George Washington University), Jonathan S. Masur (University of Chicago), and Lisa Robinson (Harvard University). The workshop will be moderated by Cary Coglianese, Edward B. Shils Professor of Law and Director of the Penn Program on Regulation, University of Pennsylvania Law School.
