The social face of the Regulatory State

Chapter nine broadens the scope of country comparison beyond the EU context and engages in international comparison of postal reform. Particular emphasis is put on the varying reform record in liberal market economies (LMEs), contrasting LME postal reform leaders and LME postal reform laggards. While New Zealand and Australia have taken the lead of the international postal reform movement, the situation in the United States and Canada has for a considerable period of time been characterised by reform deadlock. Interesting insights can furthermore be drawn from the contrasting reform experience in Asia, comparing change in the coordinated market economy (CME) in Japan and the state-led market economy (SME) in Singapore. The chapter rounds up with a section on postal reform in emerging market economies in the Latin American context, which illustrates that the reform recipes developed in mature market economies may not apply in a different context.

Keywords:   emerging market economies, coordinated market economies (CMEs), liberal market economies (LMEs), postal reform, state-led market economies (SMEs)
