"Competition Commission" and the FAA are, I am assuming, comprised of people. People have weaknesses, (likes and dislikes). These are played upon by the "competitors". Whomever threatens best or offers the most money wins whatever appointment or ruling they desire, in most instances.Originally posted by Nereid
I'm looking forward to your analysis, and particularly the role played in such engineering by competition regulators, be they direct (e.g. "Competition Commission", FAA), or indirect (e.g. legal institutions).
There are few left of the old guard. You know, the GI who would throw himself on the grenade to save the platoon. There are some but somehow I don't imagine them to be behind a desk luxurating in the climate controlled offices of a presumably unassuming government. When your boss is 350 million tax payers its easy to slip between the cracks unnoticed in your ineptitude and lack of courage.
Thank you and "I'll be back".
