Models of Economic and Social Regulation

(p.34) 3 Models of Economic and Social Regulation
The Regulatory State

Tony Prosser

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes different models of regulation that underlie regulatory reform, and suggests that the UK has characteristically adopted an unduly narrow model of regulation as a whole. In many areas the regulatory design has been successful, and regulatory agencies are well-established in economic life. There are also a large number of agencies for social regulation, and these have been less studied. Indeed, there may now be an argument that economic and social regulation are coming together through the influence of challenges such as climate change. This often involves collaboration between agencies and government; thus the concept of regulatory independence needs clarification and a clearer allocation of responsibilities made.
