Shon Hiatt


Entrepreneurship and innovation have been argued to play key roles in addressing the problems facing society. These include issues related to the natural environmental (air, water, and soil), health (chronic diseases and viral pandemics), food safety and security, transportation and employment (automation, AI), to name a few. Government plays an outsized role in significantly spurring and discouraging innovation and entrepreneurship, a position that has steadily increased since the end of the Great War (WWI).

At the same time, research on business-government interaction has generally conceptualized government as a single, uniform entity, leading to a large corpus of work on firm reactions to policy and firm intervention in the policymaking process (i.e., lobbying). Given that western democracies consist of both those that make the policy (elected officials) and those that implement it (the administrative state), it is surprising that researchers have typically overlooked the latter. We know very little about government agency decision-making by regulators and agency bureaucrats who have arguably the greatest day-to-day contact with and impact on entrepreneurs and business.

Shon Hiatt's keynote will highlight recent findings at the business-government agency nexus. He will also summarize working projects in the area as well as identify future areas of research in which we as business scholars can explore an arm of government that continues to grow in size and authority in economic markets in order to propose solutions that can foster greater innovation and entrepreneurship that address societal problems now and in the future.
