Technology and Innovation

The technological revolution has flourished because creators of new technologies have remained free to develop and deploy their innovations without first seeking bureaucratic approval.

Mercatus research on technology and innovation explores economic and regulatory questions regarding the development and deployment of new technologies—and what this means for society and the economy.
