The agenda for the very important Roundtable on 'FTC at 100: Into Our Second Century', which will be held on July 29-30, 2008 is now available. These panels look great and the panelists are all top notch. I commend the Commission for undertaking this critical self study and hope that we see some implementation of this self study.
According to the press release, "The sessions on July 29-30 will be composed of a series of panels designed to examine: 1) the FTC's Mission, Structure, and Resources, 2) the Deployment of Agency Resources in the Enforcement Area, 3) the Deployment of Agency Resources in the Policy Research and Development Areas, 4) the Agency's External Relationships, 5) Characteristics of a Successful Government Agency, 6) the Effectiveness of the FTC's Competition Mission, 7) the Effectiveness of the FTC's Consumer Protection Mission, and 8) How to Measure the Welfare Effects of the FTC's Competition and Consumer Protection Efforts."
