ABSTRACT
The article reports on the move of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills in Great Britain to halt its call for proof on its draft new principles for economic regulation. According to the author, it is the responsibility of the people to make it difficult for policymakers to take care of arbitrariness, inconsistency and intense changes of policy. It stresses that the main problem is the role of politicians of intimidating the regulators into doing what is politically convenient.
