Rethinking Market Regulation

Helping Labor by Overcoming Economic Myths

John N. Drobak

  • Presents a distinct perspective by challenging two key economic principles: that markets are competitive and the claim that corporations exist for the benefit of their shareholders, but not for other stakeholders
  • Engages critically with government decisions to base intervention on economic principles, highlighting the resulting social and financial implications
  • Provides a comparison between the legal and social treatment of labor in the US and the EU, arguing for the adoption of measures taken in Europe
