The Law and Economics of Regulation

Examines the principles and practices of regulatory environments.

Class description

The Fall and Winter quarters of IMS explored external and internal dimensions of organizational leadership. This quarter we bring those dimensions together to examine how to shape policy and public life strategically as a leader and change agent. Using the frameworks, perspectives, and thought processes covered in the previous quarters, we will explore how leaders influence the policy process and social change more generally by getting laws and programs designed, adopted, and implemented. In doing so we will add two more important frameworks to your tool kit policy politics and conflict resolution along with some related concepts concerning partnerships.
