It really is quite hard to look at the world today and say that what it needs is less regulation and more unbridled market forces.

That\’s Larry Elliott that is. I can think of at least a few regulations the ditching of which would make the world a better place.

Let\’s start with the insane, counter-productive and absurd biofuels targets shall we?

The protectionist trade barriers that impoverish both EU consumers and those that would sell to them?

Extend this list as you wish.
