This course provides an overview of the federal regulatory process, including the rationale for regulatory programs and reasons for ending or deregulating them, how and why Congress creates or abolishes agencies, how agencies administer their statutory programs and advance their and the President's policy agendas through rulemaking, guidance, adjudications, and other tools, and alternatives to traditional regulation. It will examine the ways that the President, other parts of the White House, Congress, courts, and non-governmental actors influence and control agency actions, including through appointments, budgets, oversight, and other mechanisms. In addition, it will consider business and consumer regulation as a way to address market failures.
