The Philosophers’ Café series opens this Wednesday (Sept. 16) at 7 p.m. at Titletown Brewing Company’s Frost Room, with a discussion on “The Use and Uselessness of Regulation,” led by political science Assistant Prof. David Helpap of Public and Environmental Affairs. Many think of regulations as unnecessary, burdensome, and costly; many see them as necessary for regulating the environment, consumer safety, finance, or energy use. Which institutions should regulate? Which entities should they take into consideration? What should and should not be regulated? The programs organized by UW-Green Bay faculty members are free and open to all.
