Abstract:

Government's role in past, present, and future decisions is the topic of this paper. It begins with an overview of the history of deregulation. Deregulation is discussed in theoretical terms - what happened, how did it all come about, and where things are headed. It makes the point that what has arisen is, in some ways, new forms of "economic regulation by accident", which could be more dangerous than the conscious economic regulation of the past because it is not conscious of its economic effects on the system. International competitiveness will become a new regulator. It is going to determine the way industry managers think about regulation. The demands from international competitiveness, for productivity, for understanding the economic consequences of regulation - the kind of marketplace logic that managers have discovered and learned to live with - are going to become applicable to the non-economic regulatory sphere. As the focus becomes the kind of productivity improvements that are needed in order to function in the future, emphasis will be placed on minimizing remaining government actions.
