Professional and Occupational Licensure in the United States

Author: Robert L. Hollings
Publisher: Greenwood Publishing Group
ISBN: 0313304408
Release Date: 1997-01-01
Genre: Business & Economics

A sourcebook to be used by policymakers, regulators, licensees, and consumers who wish to gain a better understanding of the regulation of the major professions and occupations within the 50 states. Topics covered include licensing restrictions, board disciplinary activities, and current licensure trends. The limited available literature on the subject of licensure demonstrates that state professional and occupational licensure boards play a critical role in protecting the public from unqualified and unscrupulous practitioners. The primary responsibility of the boards is to protect consumers by ensuring that practitioners meet established criteria for admission, maintain competency, and adhere to ethical and practice standards. Among the major issues explored are the historical development of licensure, licensing restrictions, public participation in licensure board functions, board disciplinary activities, current licensure trends, and other forms of regulation. This book also provides references and brief summaries of other works of interest and identifies the type of regulation the various states employ to monitor members of the major professions and occupations.

Bottlenecker (n): a person who advocates for the creation or perpetuation of government regulation, particularly an occupational license, to restrict entry into his or her occupation, thereby accruing an economic advantage without providing a benefit to consumers. The Left, Right, and Center all hate them: powerful special interests that use government power for their own private benefit. In an era when the Left hates “fat cats” and the Right despises “crony capitalists,” now there is an artful and memorable one-word pejorative they can both get behind: bottleneckers. A “bottlenecker” is anyone who uses government power to limit competition and thereby reap monopoly profits and other benefits. Bottleneckers work with politicians to constrict competition, entrepreneurial innovation, and opportunity. They thereby limit consumer choice; drive up consumer prices; and they support politicians who willingly overstep the constitutional limits of their powers to create, maintain, and expand these anticompetitive bottlenecks. The Institute for Justice’s new book Bottleneckers coins a new word in the American lexicon, and provides a rich history and well-researched examples of bottleneckers in one occupation after another—from alcohol distributors to taxicab cartels—pointing the way to positive reforms.

The New Deal

Author: Michael Hiltzik
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781439154496
Release Date: 2012-05-08
Genre: Business & Economics

Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal began as a program of short-term emergency relief measures and evolved into a truly transformative concept of the federal government's role in Americans' lives. More than an economic recovery plan, it was a reordering of the political system that continues to define America to this day. With this book, writer Michael Hiltzik offers fresh insights into this inflection point in the American experience. He shows how Roosevelt, through force of personality, commanded the loyalty of the fiscal conservatives and radical agrarians alike--yet the same character traits that made him a great leader would sow the seeds of the New Deal's end. Understanding the New Deal may be more important today than at any time in the last eight decades. Conceived in response to a devastating financial crisis very similar to America's most recent downturn--the New Deal remade the country's economic and political environment in six years of intensive experimentation, and provided a model for subsequent presidents who faced challenging economic conditions, right up to the present.--From publisher description.
