Why is regulation important?
Regulation is one of the three core levers for governments (along with fiscal and monetary policy) to manage the economy and strengthen the well-being of citizens. We take these rules that determine our safety and life style every day as granted.

Worse, they can become ineffective in achieving their objectives and fail to protect us and we lose trust in our institutions.
