There is a Significant
Ongoing Conversation
Regarding the Size and
Intrusiveness of the
Regulatory State
This is one of the grand
debates in law + politics…
Often these conversations
are not particularly
empirical in nature
Can we bring some
scientific tools to better
inform the conversation?
This links to some of
our broader interest in
Legal Complexity
Legal Uncertainty
Legal Risk

  68. 68. In Bommarito & Katz 2016, we explored the mean-field temperature and diversity of the regulatory ecosystem
  69. 69. and mentioned that there were likely to be differential regulatory dynamics and microclimates therein

  72. 72. We store a value for each {Company, Act, Year}
  73. 73. We store a value for each {Company, Act, Year} So we can consider either companies or acts/agencies as the unit of analysis
  74. 74. (I) Act/ Agency Centric View
  75. 75. The Company / Act Matrix (a)
  76. 76. Sequencing of Regulatory Bitstrings for a Given YearFigure 2:
  77. 77. Sequencing of Regulatory Bitstrings for a Given Year Securities Act is part of the universal profile Actually, it is axiomatic to this dataset Figure 2:
  78. 78. Each Company is a very narrow column of this graph
  79. 79. Notice that this overall plot is pretty sparse
  80. 80. Notice that this overall plot is pretty sparse This implies that most regulations do *not* impact most companies
  81. 81. Dynamics Revealed by Exploring Time Series Signatures (b)
  82. 82. Characterizing the Impact of a Rule on the Broader Regulatory Risk Environment
  83. 83. For most scientific inquries - there is a tradeoff of granularity versus generality
  84. 84. In the spirit of complex systems / physics, we would like to offer a generalization …
  85. 85. Track the frequency of act references as a function of time
  86. 86. And analyze that time series signature …
  87. 87. Some Motivating Examples Clean Water Act Sarbanes Oxley Y2K Figure 3
  88. 88. We are undertaking a version of this approach Riley Crane and Didier Sornette. "Robust dynamic classes revealed by measuring the response function of a social system." Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 105, no. 41 (2008): 15649-15653.
  89. 89. μ σ τ auto-correlation (can be thought of as memory) set each parameter to base zero at time = and indext 0 variance2 mean (H, M, L) (+, -) (H, M, L)

  91. 91. Taxonomy of Behavioral Signatures Figure 4
  92. 92. (‘M’ ‘H’, ‘+’) Anti Kickback Fairness In Asbestos Injury Resolution American Clean Energy And Security Pension Funding Equity Medicare, Medicaid, And SChip Benefits Improvement Clusters that have a Similar Behavioral Signature (Not necessariy topically similar) (‘H’ ‘H’, ‘+’) Patient Protection And Affordable Care Secure And Fair Enforcement For Mortgage Licensing Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform And Consumer Protection Energy Independence And Security Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization Table 1
  93. 93. What is interesting is that these otherwise unrelated acts share a physical similarity (‘H’ ‘H’, ‘+’) Patient Protection And Affordable Care Secure And Fair Enforcement For Mortgage Licensing Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform And Consumer Protection Energy Independence And Security Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization
  94. 94. They are similar in the manner in which they impact the broader corporate risk environment (‘H’ ‘H’, ‘+’) Patient Protection And Affordable Care Secure And Fair Enforcement For Mortgage Licensing Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform And Consumer Protection Energy Independence And Security Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization
  95. 95. In sum, we are able to use this framework to *classify* any regulation by its behavioral signature
  96. 96. (II) Company Centric View
  97. 97. In Bommarito & Katz 2016, we undertook a simple encoding and selected a well known distance metric (i.e. hamming distance)
  98. 98. Once we have a distance metric or some manner to encode edges…
  99. 99. we can generate a network projection of the overall company landscape …
  100. 100. Network Generation Procedure a) Calculate the Hamming distance matrix as described in Paper #1 over Acts b) Threshold the matrix by removing all elements whose distances are greater than D (D=3 in this figure) c) Generate graph from resulting edge-weighted adjacency matrix, where edge weight = 1/(1 + d) d) Layout is Fruchterman-Reingold weighted showing only giant component

  115. 115. Some Potential Questions to Be Evaluated
  116. 116. Does the Fortune 100, 500 have a categorically different experience than their sector counterparts ? SIZE > SECTOR?
  117. 117. From a regulatory risk perspective — which companies bridge clusters ?
  118. 118. Does this tell us something about where the economy (or a sector thereof) is heading ?
