An economic argument for pre-emptive U.S. nano regulations

In nano on March 9, 2007 at 1:57 am

Stratfor, a global intelligence consultancy, just released new predictions for global industry regulations, including nanotechnology. Even though their analyses severely underestimate the importance of country-specific communication and opinion environments, one aspect of their argument is well taken. Regulations in Europe or other G8 countries will directly impact regulatory efforts (or attempts to avoid regulations) in the U.S.
