From the press release:
Claims by researchers Nicole and Mark Crain that government regulations cost $1.75 trillion are fundamentally flawed, says a new critique released today by the Economic Policy Institute. Flaws call for rejecting Crain and Crain model by research and policy director John Irons and Andrew Green, is a thorough critique of the deficient model Crain and Crain developed to estimate the cost of “economic regulations,” which account for 70 percent of the large cost of regulations they found in the 2010 study they wrote for the Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy that is often cited by critics of regulations.
