Bloody Crossroads II: Science and Public Policy
Video
About This Event
If you cannot attend, we welcome you to watch the event live on this page.

Both scientific realities and political pressures must influence the formulation of public policies, generally, and regulatory policy, in particular. These very different sets of constraints inevitably conflict to some degree, and the policy outcomes that result are not necessarily those most consistent with analytic rigor. This inherent conflict of science and politics will be the subject of the second-annual "Bloody Crossroads" conference at AEI.
