The IRLE is sponsored by the University of Colorado’s Silicon Flatirons Center to Sharpen the tools required for principled and thoughtful regulatory decision-making. The May Seminar is geared toward state regulators and staff, and distills the critical law and economics issues that arise in closely-regulated network industries and presents them in a coherent fashion.
The IRLE draws on the expertise of leading academics, practitioners, and scholars. In particular, it highlights the important tools provided by neo-classical economics, new instutional economics, “code as law,” Schumpeter, and public choice theory. The curriculum also includes a discussion of corporate finance principles and risk valuation as applied to regulation.
