Information, investment and innovation are the engines of economic growth in the 21st century. Yet regulatory accumulation and outdated regulatory processes are preventing both the private and public sectors from effectively using the three “I’s” to solve problems and grow the economy.

This programs examines the effects that current regulatory practices have on economic growth and problem-solving, as well as the types of regulatory reforms that can unleash new potential for healthier, safer and more prosperous communities.
