Industry and Trade

  • Phillip Crowson


Chapters 2 to 5 have set out the economic theories of how companies operate, and Chapters 6 to 8 have described their broad economic environment. This chapter, and the next, discuss some of the practical problems of economic policy which impinge on a company’s operations. In particular, this chapter describes some of the main areas where governments regulate industrial activity in order to meet their policy objectives. Often these objectives may be based on some ill-digested theory totally unrelated to existing circumstances, but that does not in any way moderate the resultant impact.
