Regulation: Changing attitudes and Unintended Consequences

In the first of our lockdown editions, we focus on regulation.

Are we seeing a change in attitudes towards regulation? As swathes of regulations and licences are suspended or temporarily rescinded due to Covid-19, are people finally realising that regulation can be a bad thing? Even though draconian restrictions on movement and business have been brought in, supposedly to deal with the pandemic, are we showing that regulations get in the way of business and cause more harm than good?

We also talk about the unintended consequences of the state creating rules and regulations before talking about how the lockdown is affecting people and how the police are going far beyond their remit.
