5 Among the ratifying countries, only two are western European countries with a long-standing democratic tradition, while the great majority are post-Communist countries without either a strong democratic or an administrative law tradition. The goal of this paper is to analyze and explain the first half of this seeming anomaly.

Are there explanations for the ratification delay that go beyond the complexity of fitting the Convention’s provisions into existing legal structures?

Financial institutions are able to specialize in the forms of audits required to ensure viability of the corporation for liability purposes. Insurance institutions are able to monitor and regulate for moral hazard. Regulators now have a wide range of options for generating continuous monitoring, including bonding and insurance requirements. This requires that the state participate in complicated forms of contracting and contract review in place of the need for continuous monitoring. The comparative costliness of the two approaches will determine which will be the optimal approach to monitoring.

It also indicates how these institutions fail to eliminate the state’s role completely, but merely shifts its focus away from policing compliance and toward writing contracts. It is similar to the franchising movement generally in public services: the state is able to engage other agents to perform certain of its former roles but only to the extent that it writes a complete and contingent contract. Again, the increased complexity in the institution comes with its costs. Finally, the last theme noted in the volume concerns the limits of economics itself in the field of policy and in the area of environment in particular.
