Summary

Virtually all enterprises are regulated. Regulation is crucial not only to economic success but also to protecting consumer, worker, environmental, and other interests. Yet it is often considered a tiresome interference with entrepreneurial activity. This negative vision is unhelpful in addressing business and other needs for productive forms of regulation.

Taming the Corporation offers an alternative, positive, vision of regulation. It stresses the role of good regulation in allowing businesses to flourish, serve markets effectively, and respect broader interests. This perspective paves the way for more productive regulatory designs. It looks at the characteristics of good regulation and provides businesses, consumers, and citizens with the arguments that will enable them to push for regulatory controls that serve their needs. Understandings of regulation are served by looking at the potentially positive roles of control strategies ranging from 'command laws' to 'nudges'. This book not only discusses regulatory theory but also uses numerous case examples to illustrate real life challenges and address three key regulatory challenges in the modern world: regulating for sustainability, addressing global warming, and controlling digital platforms.
