The Rise of the Regulatory State of the South

Pritchett Lant

Oxford University Press

This chapter comments on the discussions in Chapters 2 to 8, which examined the ‘regulatory state’ approach — the use of the state as regulator of services produced by others rather than as a direct producer — and especially the notion of ‘independent regulatory authorities’ in the domain of infrastructure. Specifically, the chapter considers how they relate to more general issues in development thought and practice. It addresses four main questions. First, how do ideas move from one context to another? Second, what does one do when ideas fail? Third, can design mechanisms really resolve fundamental conflicts? Fourth, do rules matter in a deals world?

Keywords:   regulatory state, state regulation, independent regulatory authorities
