    Views

    My early interest in human capital and the economics of the family led to an interest in the interaction between the family and the State. I wrote three articles concerning government regulation of family activities — adoption, alimony and the hours of working women. These led in turn to a more general interest in government regulation and industrial organisation and to two articles on the regulation of automobile insurance.

    These interests continue. In my current position I have studied regulation of entry into health care, competition in the computer industry, and State regulation of natural gas prices.
