[Fourth Branch] Regulation & the American Dream

Arguably, regulation has helped us achieve the American Dream. The benefits are numerous. But have regulations gone too far? The Regulatory Transparency Project’s Fourth Branch video series will explore this question.

The Fourth Branch video series is a product of the Regulatory Transparency Project. The RTP is a years-long endeavor designed to reach and to educate a broad audience. The purpose, in part, is to illustrate that regulatory excess is not a partisan issue but, a good government issue. We believe that such an approach can lead to both immediate changes and, more importantly, development of a healthy societal understanding of both regulatory benefits and costs.
