In a few weeks, the next Innovation Policy and the Economy conference will be held in Washington, DC to explore digitization’s consequence for economic activity. The conference draws on some of the frontier research in this area, encompassing issues in TV, online payment systems, platforms, industry restructuring, technology and the labor force, and the institutions that support or deter economic growth.
The topics on the agenda are:
Howard Shelanski, administrator for the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, provides the luncheon address. Shelanski has recently identified a collection of initiatives aimed to update regulations, pinpoint gaps and reduce regulatory burdens that has resulted in net savings of approximately $28 billion over five years.
Held each year since 2000, the NBER Innovation Policy and the Economy conference aims to bring first rate research grounded in analysis and measurement into policy conversations, and is geared to an audience of congressional and administration staff and other policymakers and policy analysts. In recent years it has attracted 100-120 people from the executive and legislative branches, as well as from other Washington organizations and members of the press.
The conference is scheduled for Tuesday, April 12, 2016, at the Newseum (555 Pennsylvania Ave, NW) in Washington, DC. To attend, please contact Rob Shannon before Monday, March 28 at 617/868-3900 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
