Three Mentors

Each of us cherish our exposure to those who played a major role in our education. Here are my top three:

Ralph Blodgett          Economics Professor (Ph.D. Committee)

Rufus Issacs             Mathematician (Supervisor)

Allan Schmid            Institutional Economist (Co-worker)

Jim Tozzi

NB The above list is a result of questions asked by reporters as to the most influential educational figures in my career. It is a question that all of our readers might want to address. In addition, you often know where a person is coming from if you know where he or she has been; full disclosures such as the above are often more significant than identifying the types of degrees conferred on an individual.

Public Dissemination of “Management of the Administrative State”

Editor’s Note: The report presented herein is an advocacy document aimed at furthering the prudential management of the administrative state–not its abolition.

In preparing this report our objective is to initiate a debate on the principles available for managing the administrative state. It is envisioned that the resultant program will transcend existing topics such as judicial review, centralized regulatory review and benefit-cost analyses and by doing so recognize that agency-made law is exponentially greater than anything produced by the courts.

We call your particular attention to the footnotes and their associated links in the aforementioned report; they are among the priority posts reproduced from thousands of pages of material on the CRE website.
