New Nano Law?

Abstract:
Kevin Bullis: It seems unlikely that new regulations will be passed in the current, decidedly anti-regulatory Congress and administration. Indeed, if history is a guide, the consensus needed to generate a law may arise only in response to a disaster. With nanotech, however, its proponents are trying to get ahead of the game, to set up a framework that prevents a problem in the first place. For now, though, the most helpful strategy may be to focus on extending basic research to create a solid foundation for regulation, when and if the political will for it emerges.

(Ed.'s note: Mr. Bullis is of course talking about nanoscale materials, not molecular manufacturing, which needs a great deal more planning.)
