event reminder: "Coase's FCC at 50" (Thur. 9am at George Mason Law School)
(previous | next)

Just a reminder about this week's event on the 50th anniversary of Ronald Coase's seminal article, "The Federal Communications Commission." Coase's critique of the political allocation of radio spectrum, and his arguments for achieving efficient allocation by allowing the government to sell rights to the spectrum, has had a profound effect on the course of communications policy. This event will explore the impact of Coase's ideas and the legacy of his article and life's work on communications and media policy.

This event will take place on Thursday morning at 9:00 in Hazel Hall, Room 121 (ground floor) at the George Mason University School of Law in Arlington. The event is being co-hosted by The Mercatus Center at George Mason University and The Progress & Freedom Foundation and Jerry Brito and I will be co-moderating the session.

Opening remarks will be given by Commissioner Robert M. McDowell of the Federal Communications Commission and his remarks will be followed by a panel discussion that includes:

  • Prof. Thomas W. Hazlett, George Mason University School of Law

  • Dr. Jeffrey A. Eisenach, Empiris LLC & George Mason University School of Law

  • Dr. Evan Kwerel, Federal Communications Commission

  • John Williams, Federal Communications Commission

We hope you can make it! Please RSVP here.
