Regulatory Reform CEPersVid-33

Regulatory Reform really means the reforms needed to slow down the concentration of our U.S. economy into the hands of fewer and fewer multinational corporations and their controlling individuals. Regulatory reform is needed in many areas, (a) to provide greater opporunity for individuals and small businesses; and (b) to reduce the unfair allocation of the nation’s wealth to various favored groups. Although the leaders of the nation and their controlled media talk about Regulatory Reform, you can bet your last dollar nothing meaningful is going to happen at the federal and state levels. Instead, meaningful reform of our economy is going to come, if at all, from the smallest towns and villages in the U.S., where reform is still possible, and such reform (if achieved) will spread like grass roots to other towns and villages, and to counties and cities. This video tells you the regulatory reforms that are needed but will not be achieved, at the federal or state level. Many of the possible reforms for towns and villages are described in and To see other videos by Carl Person, search in YouTube for Carl Person’s trademark “CEPersVid”.

Regulatory Responses to Technology Disruptions and Scientific Innovations

Irina Brass, Agile, Anticipatory, Adaptive: Regulatory Responses to Technology Disruptions and Scientific Innovations, Monday 26th July, 14. CET; 13.00 London; 15.00 Jerusalem.
Recent scientific and technological innovations across the digital, physical, and biological spheres have arguably pushed our societies into the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Governments and key policy stakeholders have responded by advocating more agile, anticipatory, and adaptive regulations to address the benefits, emerging risks, and uncertainties associated with these disruptive innovations. In this seminar, Dr. Irina Brass will discuss the new mechanisms and structural changes that characterize these regulatory proposals, aiming to understand how they relate to the theory and practice of previous reforms such as better, smart, (really) responsive, or reflexive regulation. Based on a systematic literature review, Dr. Brass will argue that anticipatory, adaptive, and agile regulations have some unique features designed to integrate new knowledge about the emergent risks and uncertainties associated with disruptive techno-scientific innovations. Yet, these regulatory proposals do not share a cohesive set of instruments, mechanisms, or regulatory governance practices. Dr. Brass will address this gap in the design and implementation of regulatory innovations aimed to respond in a more dynamic manner to technology disruptions and scientific innovations.
