Are markets in developing and transition economies over-regulated or under-regulated? This is a perennial question in the development discourse, but one for which answers appear to come more from preset ideology rather than from context specific analysis and evidence.
This conference seeks to explore the frontiers of policy analysis and research on Markets, Labor and Regulation. It will (i) consider regulation of output markets and markets for capital as well as the market for labor, (ii) pay particular attention to the enforcement of regulations, (iii) explore the links between regulation, deregulation and inequality, (iv) highlight the political economy of regulation, and (v) bring in international dimensions of regulation.
