Bottleneckers and Occupational licensure

A “bottlenecker” is a person who advocates for the creation or perpetuation of government regulation, particularly an occupational license, to restrict entry into his or her occupation, thereby accruing an economic advantage without a benefit to consumers.

On today’s show, I want to look at bottleneckers, in particular occupation licensure.

Joining me today is the director of strategic research at the Institute for Justice and a professor at the University of Colorado and the co-author of a very important book–Bottleneckers: Gaming the Government for Power and Private Profit–Dick Carpenter, PhD.

Show host, Robert Herriman looks at issues of politics, society and culture through interviews with expert guests and commentary, news and analysis. He always calls balls and strikes on important issues of the day.
