    Free To Choose 1980 – Who Protects the Worker?– Union Legislation

    Unions have long recognized that the surest and most effective way for them to get power without violence is to have the federal government on their side. That’s why so many strong unions have made it a point to locate their headquarters close to the source of power. The heads of the trade unions that cluster near Capitol Hill know this place very well. It is the room assigned to the Committee on Education and Labor of the House of Representatives, and it is where much of our labor legislation is discussed and shaped before presentation to Congress. I know rooms like this myself very well, because I’ve often testified…

    Proposed S-K and S-X Rule Amendments

    I’m attorney Laura Anthony founding partner of Legal & Compliance, a full service corporate, securities, and business transactions law firm. Today is the continuation in a LawCast series talking about the SEC’s proposed rule amendments to simplify and modernize disclosure requirements for public companies, investment companies and investment advisers. During this LawCast series I have gone through the rule amendments proposed by the SEC on October 11, 2017 and am now summarizing the rule amendments proposed earlier on July 13, 2016, which amendments are slated for action this year. On July 13, 2016, the SEC issued a 318-page proposed rule change on Regulation S-K and Regulation S-X to amend disclosures…

    Capitalism v. Cronyism: Why Can’t You Buy a Tesla in Utah? [POLICYbrief]

    Today, in Utah, if you’re interested in buying a Tesla, you can go see one in person, go down to their storefront in Salt Lake City and there will be a Tesla on display, and you will even be able to take a test ride, but you can’t ask about the price and you certainly can’t buy one. If you want to make that step and purchase a Tesla, you’ve got to cross state lines. The regulatory framework for how cars are sold varies from state to state. Unfortunately, in few states is that regulatory framework ever simple. In Utah, there’s a licensing act and a franchise act. These two…

    Introduction to the Labor & Employment Working Group

    My name is Greg Jacob and I am the Chairman of the Labor & Employment working group of the Regulatory Transparency Project. I’m a partner at O’Melveny & Myers and a former Deputy Solicitor and Solicitor of the U.S. Department of Labor. The Labor & Employment working group examines the more than 80 years of accumulated regulations that govern our nation’s working relationships. Decades ago, it was a relatively simple task to determine who was an employee, what qualifies as working time, and what constitutes hiring or firing. But, technological advances, shifts in our economy, and changes in worker preferences — particularly an increased desire among many workers for greater…

    Bureaucracy Basics: Crash Course Government and Politics #15

    Hi, I’m Craig, and this is Crash Course Government & Politics, and today, we’re gonna talk about bureaucracies, just as soon as I finish filling out these forms. Do I really have to initial here, here, and here on all three copies, Stan? Regulations say so? All right. I’m just kidding. I don’t really have to fill out forms in triplicate in order to make an episode of Crash Course, but this kind of stuff is one of the main reasons that people don’t like bureaucracies. Americans tend to associate them with incomprehensible rules and time-wasting procedures and probably most annoying – actual bureaucrats. But bureaucracies are a lot like…

    Introduction to the IT & Emerging Technology Working Group

    My name is Gregory McNeal. I’m a Professor of Law and Public Policy at Pepperdine University and I chair the Emerging Technology working group of the Federalist Society’s Regulatory Transparency Project. Why does emerging technology matter? Innovation and emerging technology has been the engine of driving human progress over the last 100 years. And one of the challenges that we have is that a new company or a new entity creates a new technology and regulators, with the best of intentions, apply legacy regulations to that new technology. And so it’s born captive, it’s born in a cage, and sometimes it never gets out of that cage. For example, in…

    Regulatory Sandboxes & Consumer Protection [Fourth Branch]

    Okay Google. What is a regulatory sandbox? A regulatory sandbox is a new regulatory approach that allows live, time restricted testing of innovations under a regulator’s oversight. In other words, it gives businesses a space to play with new ideas and products within certain boundaries before they bring them to market. Since the United Kingdom’s inaugural launch of a regulatory sandbox back in 2015, the concept has gained traction on a global scale. Arizona recently adopted a statewide version of their own. Several other states and even the federal government seem likely to follow their lead, but questions abound. What exactly is a regulatory sandbox? Who decides how it is…
