More Invisible Elbows

Business awaits a clear and compulsory regulatory framework and a predictable carbon pricing mechanism - a level playing field - before committing itself to investing in the future of our little ol' planet. Meanwhile, the UK Government balks at imposing even the most modest carbon tariffs on carbon-heavy goods imported from the US - terrified of letting go of the dogma of unfettered markets, lest the Emperor expose his nakedness. So Capitalists ask for Social-Democratic government intervention whilst "democratic" government asks for more capitalist fundamentalism, wasting time that we simply don't have. Our Betters, you've gotta love 'em!.
