In the late 1970s, The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) was threatened with termination following a wave of criticism related to what was widely perceived to be a neglect of its fundamental competition and consumer protection responsibilities, along with its forays into "social engineering."Beginning in the early 1980s, under the direction of Chairman James Miller, the agency implemented a new era of economically-oriented analysis into its regulatory considerations. The Regulatory Revolution at the FTC examines this period of transition in light of continuing debate about the FTC's mission. Editor James Campbell Cooper has assembled contributions from leading economists and scholars, including many of the central figures in the Miller-era Commission and today'sFTC, who provide a comprehensive and revealing story about the importance of economic analysis in regulatory decision-making. Together, they foster a crucial understanding of the evolution of the FTC from an agency on the brink of extinction to one widely respected for its performance and economicsophistication.
