Gauging the job impact of environmental regulations

Sarah Gardner Apr 6, 2012

You hear a lot these days about government regulations as “job-killers.”  Well,  a new study out of NYU is urging the EPA to consider jobs when it proposes new environmental rules. That literally means factoring in job loss or job creation estimates into the cost/benefit analysis that comes with each of these new regulations. We speak with Michael Livermore, the director of the Institute for Policy Integrity at New York University School of Law about the study.
