Government spending may be slowing but regulatory output is not. The number of regulations passed the one million mark in 2010, and their volume continues to rise.  What does the continuing growth of so many rules mean for the U.S. economy and individual industries? 

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University invites you to join us for a Regulation University presentation by Dr. Patrick McLaughlin examining the economic consequences of regulatory accumulation and reform options that can help sort out problem-solving regulations from problematic regulations.
