The past two decades have seen remarkable change in American regulatory politics. In the 1960s and 1970s, the activities of public interest movements prompted a dramatic and far-reaching expansion in the government's role as protector of public health, the consumer and the environment. Conversely, the Reagan era saw a backlash reaction against tight social and economic regulation, spearheaded by the Reagan Administration. This book is a unique study of two of the most influential regulatory agencies, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which together represent a broad cross-section of regulatory bodies as a whole. The authors assess the long term consequences of the Reagan Administration's attempts to reduce social regulation, and outline the difficulties encountered on the path to reform caused by the remarkable resilience of established regulatory policies.
