1 DOERN, G. Bruce. Red Tape, Red Flags : Regulation for the Innovation Age. The 2007 CIBC Scholar-in-Residence Program. Foreword by Allan Gregg.
Conference Board of Canada, Ottawa , 2007, ISBN:0887637930 
DOERN, G. Bruce. Red Tape, Red Flags : Regulation for the Innovation Age. The 2007 CIBC Scholar-in-Residence Program. Foreword by Allan Gregg. Ottawa : The Conference Board of Canada, 2007. First Edition. Pp [i]-xvi,[1]-196. 8vo, illustrated red and white card covers. "Making and enforcing regulations and rules is at least one-third of what governments do. This analysis ofregulation in the innovation age makes some broad comparisons between regu lation, taxation and spending, in order to discuss a strategic gap in Canadaís governance: the lack of an overall federal regulatory agenda. The author advances three central arguments: that the red-tape and red-flag issues that concern Canadians are no longer as diametrically opposed as they once were; that current federal policy is based far too much on a one-regulation-at-a-time approach; and that the federal government needs to develop a strategic approach to setting priorities for new regulations, similar to agendas for taxation and spending. He also argues that Canada should establish a Regulatory and Risk Review Commission to provide armís-length expert advice. The study includes case studies of the complex regulatory regimes governing three fields: pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and energy." - Conference Board of Canada. Very good. 12.50

2 DOERN, G. Bruce. PRINCE, Michael J. SCHUTLZ, Richard J. Rules and Unruliness : Canadian Regulatory Democracy, Governance, Capitalism, and Welfarism. FIrst Paperback Edition.
McGill-Queens University Press, Montreal and Kingston, 2014, ISBN:9780773543331 
DOERN, G. Bruce, Michael J. PRINCE, and Richard J. SCHULTZ. Rules and Unruliness : Canadian Regulatory Democracy, Governance, Capitalism, and Welfarism. Montreal and Kingston: McGill-Queens University Press, (2014). First Paperback Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xv,(3),[3]-397,(3). 8vo, illustrated blue and yellow card covers with white lettering to front cover and spine. "Analyzing regulatory politics and governance in Canada from the beginning of Pierre Trudeau's era to Stephen Harper's government, the authors present a compelling argument that current regulation of the economy, business, and markets is no longer adequate to protect Canadians. They examine rules embedded in public spending programs and rules regarding political parties and parliamentary government. They also look at regulatory capitalism to elucidate how Canada and most other advanced economies can be characterized by co-governance and co-regulation between governments, corporations, and business interest groups. Bringing together literature on public policy, regulation, and democracy, 'Rules and Unrulines' is the first major study to show how and why increasing unruliness affects not only the regulation of economic affairs, but also the social welfare state, law and order, parliamentary democracy, and the changing face of global capitalism." - from the rear cover. Very good. 25.00
