The rising tide of government regulation in most countries is provoking a reconsideration of how the state should lay down rules for others. Self-regulations are now being examined as substitutes for government regulation. The commentaries in this book address this very subject, with articles on the forces behind government regulation, its shortcomings, and the scope of voluntary regulation. Other subjects include: Markets & Regulation; Benefits of Private Regulation; Challenge to State Regulation; Maintaining Financial Stability; The Devil or the Deep Blue Sea; and Market-Based Regulatory Mechanisms.
