Nanotech Risk...Aren't We Leaving Someone Out of the Debate?

Abstract:
Darrell F. Dvorak: ...take the debate about regulation of nanotechnologies. Because nanotech operates at the molecular level, there has been much speculation about new, unknown risks of nano products and processes. Indeed, it now appears that the debate is no longer whether nano will be regulated, but only about its form and degree.

To help ensure that the debate is open, fair, and fact-based, nanotech entrepreneurs urgently need to understand how to think about risks and regulation. Amidst all the rhetoric, you are likely to hear two fundamentally different approaches to regulating technology risks.
