(p.155) 7 From Stagnation to Fiasco: the Age of the Regulatory State
The British Regulatory State

Michael Moran (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The age of the new regulatory state in Britain is also the age of policy fiasco. Fiasco is both a reflection of hyper-innovation and a force driving the state to even greater frenzies of hyper-innovation. It is argued that the emergent regulatory state amounts to an incomplete reconciliation with the conditions of modernity: with governing arrangements where codified knowledge matters more than tacit knowledge; where codified rules matter more than understanding; where instrumental achievement matters more than traditionally occupied positions; and where measurable accountability matters more than elite solidarity.
