California was once the powerhouse of American growth and innovation. Over the years, however, it has developed a regulatory state that now stifles entrepreneurship, opportunity, and overall development. To consider this important case study of the implications of progressive state and local policies on business and growth, you’re invited ​to join the Adam Smith Society on Tuesday, March 28, at noon ET for a virtual discussion on “The Regulatory Labyrinth” with Manhattan Institute director of research and senior fellow Judge Glock


Judge GlockJudge Glock is the director of research and a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor at City Journal. He was formerly the senior director of policy and research at the Cicero Institute, a nonpartisan think tank based in Austin, and a visiting professor of economics at West Virginia University. He writes about the intersection of economics, finance, and housing, with a perspective informed by his work in economic history. Glock's work has been featured in Tax Notes, the Journal of American History, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal, among other places. He is the author of the book The Dead Pledge: The Origins of the Mortgage Market and Federal Bailouts, 1913-1939, published in 2021 by Columbia University Press. He received his Ph.D. in history with a focus on economic history from Rutgers University.
