When it comes to regulation, Americans are split on how much is needed. However, authors of a new book titled Smart Regulation: Changing Speed Bumps Into Guardrails, brought to you by the Committee for Economic Development (CED) of The Conference Board, explain that “smart regulation” strikes the right balance between providing prudent consumer protection and supporting sustainable economic growth.

Join our expert panelists and book authors as they discuss:

  • The nature of regulation – how it’s developed and evolved, how it’s applied to specific industries.
  • Why is regulation a major focus of Washington policymaking today.
  • The need for an ongoing process to study, manage and update regulations to keep them relevant in changing times.

Who Should Attend: Business leaders, policy experts, government staff, lawmakers, legislative staff, think tanks and nonprofits.
