A Discussion on Populism in the Economy and Regulation of Human Action

Author: / 2020-03-30

IME published a discussion article investigating various examples of economic populism and regulations that have a direct effect on economic activity and the social environment in Bulgaria. The examples discussed are by no means exhaustive, but they aim to present the situation in many different human activities – from sharing economy to social activities, where there is a gap between real needs/actions and the current regulatory framework. Although in the cases discussed the actions of the economic operators are often on the edge or even beyond the law, we show that they are not usually offenses in their nature.
