There are thousands of people working hard in the Federal bueracracy to make effective and efficient rules and regulations, to carry out congressional policy. Unfortunately, much of this work goes without serious oversight to make sure it's based in sound premises, or is achieving the desired results. Dr. Jerry Ellig, Mercatus Senior Research Fellow, joins host Aaron Merrill to discuss the new Regulatory Oversight Toolkit, which provides policy makers and staff with both background to the regulatory regime, and advanced ways to judge whether a regulation is "working". Crucial for effective government, efficient regulation can advance policy goals, but only if done right.
