Lecture by Morris M. Kleiner
Occupational regulation in the U.S. labor market is a rapidly growing phenomenon. As of 2008, nearly 40 percent of those working had a license or certification from some form of local, state, or federal government or would have to obtain one in order to keep their job.
Professor Morris M. Kleiner will show what has happened and the policy implications of the dramatic growth of occupational licensing for those in the occupations, closely related occupational practitioners, and ultimately, consumers through the quality and cost of services provided. His lecture will blend detailed institutional knowledge, historical perspective, and economic analysis to present new insights on the costs and benefits of the evolution and impact of occupational licensing in the U.S. economy.
