DEREGULATION, PAST AND PRESENT
A Teleforum Sponsored by the ABA Section of Section of Administrative Law & Regulatory Practice
Friday, June 8, 2018, at 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM ET
Description: The present administration has seen what many consider the most dramatic effort at deregulation since Ronald Reagan took office in 1981. This teleforum considers what the proponents and opponents of deregulation can learn by looking back at deregulation’s history, particularly the Reagan era. What factors have caused deregulation to succeed or fail as a legal matter, and to thrive or sputter as a political matter? When does deregulation last, and when does it not? This program brings together veterans of the deregulation initiatives and debates of the 1980s with historians and political scientists who have begun to produce a rich scholarly literature on deregulation’s history and what that history means for us today.
