Cornell’s Ravi Kanbur and the Inter‐American Development Bank’s Santiago Levy are organizing a conference in Ithaca, NY on October 1-2, 2015 on Size and Type Dependent Regulations, concerning enterprises in both developing and developed countries.
From the call for papers:
“There has been a resurgence of interest in size and type dependent regulations in the last few years, with advances in empirical work based on newly available data sets, or application of new techniques to old data sets. Empirical work is needed for a range of countries where the issue is on the policy front burner. At the same time, the theory of size or 2 type dependent regulations, how they impact enterprises and how authorities should optimally design these regulations, needs to be refreshed in light of new empirical findings. Further, the issue of regulation enforcement, and its size and type dependent components, needs to be analyzed theoretically and empirically.”
Completed papers (preferred) or substantial abstracts (at least 5‐7 pages) can be submitted to Ravi Kanbur (firstname.lastname@example.org) as a pdf file no later than May 1, 2015. Questions should be directed to the conference organizers.
