What is Regulatory Capture?

Once upon a time, it was commonly believed that regulation was written to maximize the good to society. Since the 1970s, the economic theory of regulation has come to the foreground in policy research. Simply put, constituents demand favorable regulation and politicians supply it in return for political support. When making policy decisions, regulators weigh political support on both sides. The group that creates the most political pressure usually prevails, and in most cases this is likely to represent private interests, not the consumer. "Regulations actually benefited the regulated industry at the expense of consumers." Watch as Susan Dudley, George Washington University professor, explain the concept of Regulatory Capture.

Šta je regulatorna zarobljenost?

Nekada davno, bilo je uobičajeno vjerovati da su regulacije uspostavljene kako bi se povećala korist za društvo. Od 1970-ih, ekonomska teorija regulacije je došla u prvi plan u polju istraživanja politike. Jednostavno rečeno, birači zahtijevaju povoljne regulacije i političari ih snabdijevaju u zamjenu za političku podršku. Prilikom donošenja političke odluke, zakonodavci upoređuju političku podršku na obe strane. Grupa koja stvara najviše političkog pritiska najčešće preovlađuje, a u većini slučajeva ona vjerovatno predstavlja privatne interese, a ne interese potrošača. Pogledajte kako Susan Dudley, profesor na univerzitetu George Washington, objašnjava koncept regulatorne zarobljenosti. Izvor: EconFree YouTube kanal.
