Industrial Organization

Sound public policy can enhance industry performance. But, excessive government intervention in the market place can stifle innovation and retard industry progress. Policy makers must strike the proper balance between productive intervention and reasoned laissez faire on a variety of fronts. For example, policy makers must decide which activities should be undertaken by the public sector and which should be carried out in the private sector. Policy makers must also determine when industry groups will police their members adequately, obviating the need for direct government control. In addition, policy makers must determine whether license requirements, quality standards, anti-discrimination clauses, industry participation rules and the like will provide benefits that outweigh associated costs. Such determination is particularly challenging in new, emerging markets, including those that involve the Internet.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
