Risk Regulation

Author

  • Pollak, R.A.

Abstract

In the United States, risk regulation is separated into two components: risk assessment, the scientific or technical component, and the risk , management, the policy or political component. Public fears clearly do play a role in the formulation of government policies regulating risks, and it is not obvious that such fears should not play a role.
