Public Regulation of Global Indicators

(p.465) 18 Public Regulation of Global Indicators
Governance by Indicators

This chapter addresses several arguments for and against the regulation of various global indicators. It uses the rating produced by credit rating agencies and argues that, in normative terms, the resolve as to whether a regulatory framework is needed depends on factors such as the kinds of users involved. It also presents a taxonomy of various conditions of use, uses, and types of indicators. This taxonomy would help in distinguishing cases where indicators as accountability-enhancers need protection from regulation.

Keywords:   regulation, global indicators, credit rating agencies, regulatory framework, taxonomy, accountability-enhancers
