(p.137) Chapter 8 Let Government Govern
Achieving Democracy

Sidney A. Shapiro

Joseph P. Tomain

Oxford University Press

Part IV concludes the book. Chapter 8 makes a sustained argument that an active government is necessary for an expansive approach to economic and political participation in society. Democracy requires no less. The losses that have been sustained over a generation must be recaptured, and they can be done through a renewed understanding of economics and a renewed democratic politics. The traditional approach to regulation was to address problems once they have occurred. The problems that face us in the future, such as climate change, require a regulatory state that anticipates rather than reacts to social and economic dislocations. Chapter 8 describes a new model of regulation and presents examples of new regulatory institutions, methodologies, and principles that will better serve society and will do so more democratically and more justly.
