Zywicki a Panelist in AEI Program on U.S. Policy Impact

Professor Todd Zywicki took part in a discussion sponsored by the National Chamber Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy in which noted scholars examined current U.S. regulatory policy and the impact of new and more aggressive regulations during a time of economic uncertainty. The July 8 event, entitled "U.S. Regulatory Policy and Free Enterprise: The Impact on Economic Recovery," was held at the offices of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. Former Education Secretary Margaret Spellings, senior advisor to the president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, gave the introductory remarks.

Joining Zywicki as a discussant in the second panel of the day were Christopher DeMuth of AEI and Scott Harrington of the Wharton School of Business. The panel was moderated by Nick Schultz of AEI as it considered its topic, The Surprising Return of Price Controls. Panelists examined controls on credit cards and health insurance, as well as their possible extension to other markets, and whether new price controls will benefit consumers where old ones did not.
