This month we introduce a very apropos article that is not only a follow up to our October spectrum allocation article but is also tremendously relevant in this lame duck period between administrations in the US as we all wonder what strategy the Trump administration will take in allocating spectrum as the explosion in new wireless services, with new business strategies, continues. Tom and Mike reveal the answer is way more complicated than you probably thought. Comments from the Donald or anyone else are very welcome.

Deregulation would unleash efficiencies and enhance U.S. spending and productivity growth, according to Robert Crandall, senior fellow, Brookings Institution, who delivered the Tullock Lecture at Clemson University on Oct. 31.

Robert-Crandall

Crandall, a renowned author and expert on the economics of government regulation, will spoke from 4-5:30 p.m. in Memorial Auditorium of Tillman Hall. The Tullock Lecture on Big Ideas about Information is sponsored by the Information Economy Project.

Crandall, whose current research focuses on telecommunications policy, will review evidence showing how complex and costly health, safety and environmental regulation is thwarting job and income gains, while producing fewer benefits than are possible with better-crafted rules. He advocates for market-based incentives, including an approach that would replace the EPA’s Clean Power Plan with a carbon tax.

Crandall holds an M.S. and Ph.D. from Northwestern University, where he taught economics. He has also taught at MIT, Maryland, George Washington University and Stanford. He is the author of several books including, with Cliff Winston and Vikram Maheshri, First Thing We Do: Let’s Deregulate All the Lawyers (Washington, D.C.: Brookings, 2011).

A reception and refreshments followed the lecture.
