The IRLE workshop is now open for applications from all state regulators and commission staff who have an interest in network industries such as telecommunications and energy. The workshop draws on the expertise of leading academics, practitioners, and scholars who distill the critical law and economics issues that arise in closely regulated network industries and presents them in a coherent fashion. In particular, it highlights the important tools provided by neoclassical economics, innovation and dynamism, institutional and organizational economics, public choice economics, and the innovator’s dilemma. The curriculum also includes a discussion of corporate finance principles and risk valuation as applied to regulation. This four-day conference will foster discussion and cohesion, so attendance is limited to no more than 20 attendees.
The IRLE is an educational and outreach program of the University of Colorado Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, to sharpen the tools required for principled and thoughtful regulatory decision-making.
