Ours is unquestionably an Age of Statutes. Yet the comprehensive study of statutes, the legal lifeblood of the regulatory state, is a relatively recent phenomenon. Law school courses in legislation have begun to bridge this gap. The substantive law underlying the most economically sophisticated statutes, however, continues to elude American law schools. What Robert Weisberg said fifteen years ago of statutory interpretation befits economic regulation today: "nothing else as important in the law receives so little attention."
