As one who DOES play at being an economist, you would presumably know that
REAL regulatory processes involve rather more in-your-face interaction
between the regulating agency and the regulated organization, as well as a
more open comment and review process.
The simple fact of having a veto hardly counts as sufficient, though yes,
it does have some effect. However the fact that US$9 is still 2-9 times too
high makes clear that that effect is small, as does the failure to get NSI
to change its dispute policy.

No, thank you. Your own silliness is more than sufficient.
