New Regulations Not Needed Says Institute

Abstract:
In PRIís study Forward to the Future: Nanotechnology and Regulatory Policy, one of the first public policy studies to tackle the issue of nanotechnology, Glenn Harlan Reynolds, professor of law at the University of Tennessee and Instapundit blogger, drew on the experience of other regulated technologies, ranging from atomic energy to recombinant DNA. He explained that the dramatic capabilities of nanotechnology are likely to lead to misguided calls for regulation or perhaps even prohibition.
