Inexorably, the regulatory pendulum in Washington has begun to swing back. After years of diminished focus on federal regulation, through Democratic and Republican administrations alike, the Wall Street and corporate scandals in the wake of a burst economic bubble have given new life to a dimension of public policy that had fallen into disfavor. The stock market bust, the high-profile bankruptcies of a few huge companies, and a cascade of scandals about Wall Street has left consumers and investors wondering who is looking out for their interests. Federal regulators have begun a phoenix-like rise to new prominence in the political and policy debates of Washington, D.C. The Federal Regulatory Directory helps make sense of this pendulum swing. Now more than ever, informed readers need the eleventh edition. The book is a veritable "who's who" of the entire regulatory structure - the best way to learn who does what and how to reach people and get information in our electronic age.
