Example text

S. ”6 Regulation in the United States tends to be narrower in scope than in other countries, with an emphasis on manufacturing processes and specific categories of pollution, and little or no attention to the many other factors that affect environmental quality. An example is the focus on controlling pollution rather than influencing decisions about processes, raw materials, or products that determine environmental impacts. Regulation in the United States tends to isolate specific aspects of production processes and attempt to control them stringently, which means that some aspects of business are regulated tightly, although sometimes not cost-effectively, while others are ignored.

Chapter 7 considers the assumptions, conditions, and mechanisms that would characterize a new environmental regulation and discusses changes that will need to occur in laws and institutions if we are to move from the old to the new. The final chapter also looks at the political prospects for a new regulation and a strategy for achieving it. Despite the opportunity to improve both environmental and economic performance, the conditions for any near-term, comprehensive change in the United States are not favorable.

Social-political governance may be seen as new phase of governance. In particular, it reflects an awareness of the limits of a traditional, hierarchical, state-centered model. 36 The changes in environmental problems, institutional landscape, economic relationships, and industry behavior illustrate the dynamism and complexity to which a new regulatory system must be able to respond. At a theoretical level, the argument in this book is that the changes that have been described here require a shift from an old to a new approach to environmental regulation.
