Para acabar de vez com a promiscuidade entre empresas e estado

A propósito do pouco saudável “intercâmbio” de pessoal entre reguladores e regulados que pode resultar na caputra do regulador por interesses privados (referida pelo Nuno Garoupa a propósito das nomeações para a CGD) escreve Steven Horowitz:

“Despite the hopes of those who think this can be solved (…) by better ethics laws or hiring “better” regulators, the revolving door that leads to capture is not a “bug” but a feature – the private sector benefits from being regulated and will always push to be at the table and influence the process.

The problem is not regulatory or ethical, but institutional. If you want to change the pattern of outcomes, change the rules. The only possible way to end the corporate control over the state is to reduce the state’s sphere of influence down to as little as possible and ideally nothing. As long as there’s the dead animal of the state (really: the citizenry) to feed on, the vultures of the private sector will keep showing up to get their share.”
