Science-based approach needed to combat unintended consequences of regulation: Cayton
"The general trend in most jurisdictions is to regulate more and more occupations at the same time as governments promise to get rid of ‘red tape’. Getting rid of European Union regulations was an enthusiastic ambition of those arguing for Brexit in the U.K., but six years on they are finding that doing so is rather complicated and has many unwanted consequences, such as restricting rather than liberating trade relations. But deregulation, it seems, is a great deal harder than creating new controls on occupations, manufacturing, or trade." Regulatory expert Harry Cayton explores in this piece on the need for a science-based approach to regulation.
