, to environmental impacts and competition effects. (The broader meaning of regulation as a paradigm for economic governance to keep it functioning at its best, and to avoid breakdowns, is the subject of Part III.) Regulatory inflation is what the public rails about the most, little understanding what its root causes are. When governments provided many services directly, fewer regulations were necessary.
