The Google Way:
How Washington Can Regulate Without Killing Growth

WASHINGTON—The Federal Trade Commission’s settlement with Google, just announced today, appropriately balances the FTC’s core mission of protecting consumers while still boosting growth and innovation.

“The FTC has shown how regulators can be innovation-friendly” says PPI Chief Economic Strategist Michael Mandel. “Given the importance of innovation for American job growth and competitiveness, the FTC is setting a great example for other agencies.” 

See Mandel’s piece on Atlantic.com, “The Google Way: How Washington Can Regulate Without Killing Growth”.
