Here’s an ‘officious’ list of 10 principles for regulators
- Regulation is tough even at the best of times, but a short checklist of principles—in the spirit of Machiavelli’s advice on statecraft—could be of use to regulators.
The idea of penning this down came from a re-reading of Machiavelli’s Prince. This book laid down principles of statecraft back in 1513, but remains valid today. In the same spirit, this is an ‘officious’ list, entirely unsolicited, of principles for regulators of all kind. Readers, please do pay heed to caveat emptor.
