About the Author

K. Sabeel Rahman is Assistant Professor of Law, Brooklyn Law School.


"The ultimate failure of economic regulation, the author argues, derives from viewing the market's problems as technical problems, to be solved by experts, rather than problems of political domination to be solved by altering democratic institutions.

Pragmatic regulation by democratically selected grassroots participants promises better outcomes than elite technocrats selected for their expertise. Summing Up: Highly recommended." --CHOICE "The financial crisis prompted arcane debates about regulatory reform and much public outrage, but little rethinking of how citizens can have a voice in governing the economy - until now. Sabeel Rahman criticizes the managerial, technocratic approach to regulation and offers a morally robust, democratic alternative. The most important book about democracy and the regulatory state since the financial crisis." --Michael Sandel, author of * "The gods endowed Sabeel Rahman with a democratic soul. Ordinary citizens need not give over the regulatory state to managers and experts. We can combat concentrated power and remoteness from government by boldly redesigning the scale and scope of institutions.

Rosenblum, author of "Sabeel Rahman is a new, bold, and original voice in the fields of law, history, and political economy. This book brilliantly heeds Walt Whitman's prophetic call in Democratic Vistas for 'a force-infusion of intellect' to confront 'the dominant play of solely materialistic bearings upon current life in the United States.' --William J. Novak, author of
