Overview

This study addresses one of the hottest policy questions on both sides of the Atlantic—at what level of government should regulation be undertaken?. The editors bring together leading scholars to examine the various aspects of the debate between "harmonization" and "regulatory competition" across three comparative dimensions. The book provides a sharp focus on the circumstances that would yield gains from regulatory competition and to contrast those cases where heightened cooperation in standard setting or broader regulatory harmonization might increase social welfare.
