Regulation is one of the primary means by which the government affects firm decisions. Through a combination of lecture and case discussions, this course provides a framework for understanding strategic firm behavior and the objectives, consequences, and design of government regulation. Designed for students interested in the intersection of business and government, topics include competitive strategy, collusion, cartels, antitrust regulation, natural monopoly, environmental regulation, international trade, and health and safety regulations. In addition, the course examines the political economy of existing and prospective policies, introducing questions of fairness and justice, the influence of politics, and competition between jurisdictions.
