Here is the March 2015 edition of the most-downloaded recent papers (those announced in the last 60 days) from SSRN’s U.S. Administrative Law eJournal, which is edited by William Funk. For more on why SSRN and this eJournal are such terrific resources for administrative law scholars and practitioners, check out my first post on the subject here. You can check out the full rankings, updated daily, here.
I have a short-fuse filing deadline coming up, so unfortunately I haven’t had time to read all of these papers yet and won’t do my normal quick summary for the top five. Instead, I’ll just provide the list with links to authors, papers, and journals (where applicable). Here’s the list:
- Is Regulation to Blame for the Decline in American Entrepreneurship?, by Nathan Goldschlag and Alexander T. Tabarrok
