Descriptions du produit

"The Politics of Precaution" examines the politics of consumer and environmental risk regulation in the United States and Europe over the last five decades, explaining why America and Europe have often regulated a wide range of similar risks differently. It finds that between 1960 and 1990, American health, safety, and environmental regulations were more stringent, risk averse, comprehensive, and innovative than those adopted in Europe. But since around 1990, the book shows, global regulatory leadership has shifted to Europe. What explains this striking reversal? David Vogel takes an in-depth, comparative look at European and American policies toward a range of consumer and environmental risks, including vehicle air pollution, ozone depletion, climate change, beef and milk hormones, genetically modified agriculture, antibiotics in animal feed, pesticides, cosmetic safety, and hazardous substances in electronic products. He traces how concerns over such risks - and pressure on political leaders to do something about them - have risen among the European public but declined among Americans. Vogel explores how policymakers in Europe have grown supportive of more stringent regulations while those in the United States have become sharply polarized along partisan lines. And as European policymakers have grown more willing to regulate risks on precautionary grounds, increasingly skeptical American policymakers have called for higher levels of scientific certainty before imposing additional regulatory controls on business.

Rising U.S. risk taking in comparison to European democracies 10 août 2012
Par alfie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Excellent historical explanation of what happened to environmental, social, and health regulation in U.S. and rest of world in last 40 years. U.S. leading position as regulator of its businesses and protector of health, safety, and the environment has been lost to the Europeans because of factors like economic interests, political systems, the role of government, and culture. Are we in the U.S. worse off? Are the Europeans better off? What kind of trade-offs and compromises have we made in the U.S. to "free" our economy? Very timely book in light of massive government failure that is in background of great financial crisis that should lead to a rethinking of the role of government and the economy in both the U.S. and Europe. Have the Europeans been too cautious? It all may depend as all developed democracies will have to think much more carefully about when and how to regulate risk. Even the most avid free-marketers have to admit that "good" regulation is needed, but how do we achieve it? Both the U.S. and European models have limitations. This assessment of the policies pursued will help in forming better regulatory strategies going forward. A better understanding like that provided in this book of what works, what does not, why, and what can be realistically done is needed.

Good analysis of US vs. European regulations 4 septembre 2013

Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Read this for a class on govt. regulation of business. It's a good comparison of Europe and the US. The book is well written and easy to read. It is short and written in the style of a popular business book. That isn't an insult, but a compliment to the author for addressing a dry and dense subject in a readable way.
