the politics of reform and regulation
Chapter ten revisits the research questions raised initially, concluding on how the book contributes to research on comparative capitalism and regulation. It brings together the insights on varieties of public service reform gathered by in-depth analysis of the politics of postal reform in three countries, as well as wider comparison across sectors and of international postal reform. It also summarises the findings on social regulation in the public service sectors at the European and national level, and situates them with respect to the questions raised in the interdisciplinary literature on regulation. A last section addresses the challenges ahead for public service reform, such as falling mail volumes, the internet society and energy poverty.
