Intervention in industry is a flawed strategy
New research argues that the government should go denationalise the entire road network
IEA launches new Economic Affairs
Deregulation not government intervention is the solution to industrial growth
“Close collaboration between government and industrial leaders would be a dismal failure. It is a recipe for corporatism and restricting competition, and consequently growth. Current areas of close cooperation between business and government – the banking and energy sectors – are testament to how damaging this can be.
“We need to deregulate all businesses and lower taxes, not pick winners. Whilst some of Heseltine’s policies are a nod in this direction, a number of wrong conclusions are also drawn from false premises.”
