The British Regulatory State: High Modernism and Hyper-Innovation

Michael Moran


This book examines the transformation of governing arrangements in Britain from stagnation in the first two-thirds of the 20th century to hyper-innovation. These two phases were connected by crisis, namely, a crisis of economic policy and the crisis of the content of rule itself. The collapse of the club system is also discussed to explain the reasons behind the hostility towards the new regulatory state.

Keywords: Britain, stagnation, hyper-innovation, club system, regulatory state
