Description

Recent congressional hearings on social media regulation are yet another reminder of the seemingly unceasing expansion of the administrative state. In their new book, McGroarty, Robbins and Tuttle examine the political philosophy and tactics behind this “seismic shift” of power from the people to unaccountable technocrats.

Of particular note, the authors deconstruct the enduring myth that Big Government and industry are antagonists. Indeed, for a century or more, many corporations have cooperated with government to shape policies that secure their market position and minimize the harm of regulatory interference. As the authors note, the routine breach of constitutional limits on government power drives industries of all types to exercise political influence as a business strategy.

These issues will be explored with the authors in a conversation with host Diane Katz.
