Victor Essien


In his earlier work, Nivola displayed his ability to urge acceptance of controversial viewpoints. In his most recent work, Regulating Unfair Trade,' Mr. Nivola has outdone himself. Even those who disagree with some of his analyses and conclusions will acknowledge that his views are informed and balanced. Furthermore, his presentation is thorough and his style is easy to follow. Mr. Nivola divides the discussion into seven chapters. In the first chapter, "Gulliver's Travail," he describes the objective for his enterprise. In the second chapter, he maps out the terrain. In chapter three, he sets the general tone for the discussion. In chapter four, he examines specific grievances referred to as "war stories." In chapter five and six, he compares the legislative and executive approaches to the problem of regulation. In chapter seven, he recommends solutions to the problem.
