Title: Launch of the Study on Middle Class
The objective is to examine economic regulatory policies and related topical issues for informed policy making in Kenya. Economic policies and regulations affect the economy at macro-level and micro-level. At the macro-level, economic regulations have the potential of altering the economic structure; while at micro-level, economic agents are likely to experience welfare gains or losses emanating from policy regulations. Ultimately this results in improvement or reduction of individual welfare. A different regulatory framework affects competition in the provision of goods and services within a sector.
