Previously, the EPA had interpreted “source” to mean each smokestack in a polluting factory. After the election of the pro-business President Reagan, the EPA passed a rule stating that manufacturers could treat each factory as a single source, so that new technology need not be used for every smokestack, but only where required if total pollution from the whole factory increased.

The courts played different roles in these different regulatory systems, and these different roles affect the kind of information and institutional pressures the courts were transmitting. The asymmetrical nature of the courts’ transmission function resulted from the development of a positive rather than a negative feedback loop among these regulatory systems. Positive asymmetric feedback is particularly conducive to systemic change. It is the positive rather than the negative character of the courts’ inter-systemic feedback that resulted in this inter-systemic interaction’s dynamic, transformative effect on the larger constitutional system.
