Administrative agencies, and extensive regulation of the economy, have always existed in America.  But from the founding to 1900, agencies were constrained by basic principles of representation, separation of powers, and judicial review.  In his new book, Bureaucracy in America: The Administrative State’s Challenge to Constitutional Government, Professor Joseph Postell explores American history, from the Revolutionary War to the present, to answer such questions as: What is the administrative state; Is it compatible with the basic principles of American constitutionalism; How have American thinkers and statesmen answered these questions in the past; What has changed since then; and, Do these changes pose a threat to our constitutional system?

 

Featuring: 

  • Prof. Joseph Postell, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs

Agenda:

Call begins at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
