(p.270) Regulation, Taxation, and Litigation
The American Illness

Yale University Press

This chapter focuses on three policy mechanisms—regulation, taxation, and litigation. It demonstrates that litigation by government entities may lead to settlements that impose excessive regulations and financial penalties equivalent to tax. The chapter pays special attention to the Master Settlement Agreement (MSA), in which the court approved an agreement among tobacco companies and state attorneys-general that heavily regulated the tobacco industry.
