Regulation is a universal feature of modern economic life. However, regulating the economies of advanced capitalist nations is a uniquely complex activity, crossing the boundaries between law, politics, and economics, and involving problems which affect both the regulator and the regulated. For this book, eminent lawyers and political scientists have contributed essays which analyse these problems by examining in detail the experience of
regulation in different economies and diverse industries in capitalist Western Europe.
