Prescriptive versus Voluntary Policy Tools Governments depend on markets for the efficient provision of goods and services that enhance social well-being. Markets depend on government rules to function efficiently and fairly. Achieving an optimum public/private balance of state intervention and market freedom is the subject of ongoing political debate. At one end of the spectrum are those who advocate “civic governance,” whereby the state is required to intervene to protect the public good. Those on the opposite pole support an economic “consumer sovereignty” model of laissez-faire market dynamics and minimal government intervention.

Enforcement is achieved through independent third-party audits, transparency through public reporting, and “naming and shaming” by citizens, media, NGOs, and other firms.
