Abstract and Keywords

This article presents a sketch of the historical forces that have produced regulatory capitalism as a police economy. It shows that this police economy evolved from different feudal economies, the displacement of police with an unregulable nineteenth-century liberal economy, and the state provider economy that gave way to regulatory capitalism. This article determines that the reciprocal relationship between corporatization and regulation creates a world where there is more governance of all kinds.

Keywords: regulatory capitalism, historical forces, police economy, feudal economies, liberal economy, nineteenth century, state provider economy, reciprocal relationship, corporatization, regulation
