The optimists point to the autonomy and purpose of key institutions in Europe’s ‘multilevel’ polity and the capacity of the latter and the member states to create a regulatory order that bolsters Europe’s national social contracts. Meanwhile, the pessimists argue that integration has contributed to the ‘globalization’ of the European economy in breaking down the borders of economic competition while contributing little to new institution— building or preventing ‘social dumping’ and regime competition from eroding social standards.

Such an institution or ‘regulatory clearing house’ should be established at the highest level of the Commission. DGs would be asked to submit draft regulatory programmes to it annually for review. When disagreements or serious inconsistencies arise, the President of the Commission or a ‘Working Committee on regulation’ would be asked to intervene. This review process would help the Commission to screen demands for EC regulations and to shape a consistent set of regulatory measures to submit to the Council and the European Parliament.

After all, most legally binding acts have to be approved by the Council which represents the interests of the national governments and is supposed to be the real legislator in the EC system. Why not place the member states and the Commission on the same side of the demand-and-supply equation, as ‘coproducers’ of the regulatory outputs? Although this is the formally correct view, several factors suggest that from a policy making point of view it is more useful to consider that national governments demand, rather than supply, EC regulation.
