On March 23, the Rethinking Regulation program hosted a book workshop for Professor Matthew Adler’s new book project, Measuring Social Welfare: An Introduction. The book introduces the theory and application of the social welfare function (SWF), a powerful tool for assessing governmental policy. Measuring Social Welfare, under contract with Oxford University Press, is intended to serve as an accessible introduction to the SWF approach.

Distinguished guests from the Duke community and outside institutions were welcomed by Suzanne Shanahan, director of the Kenan Institute for Ethics, and Lori Bennear and Jonathan B. Wiener, co-directors of the Rethinking Regulation Program.
