I would like to imagine a catalogue of issues that should be on our radarscreen if we wish to try to transform the law from the problem into the solution of the current disaster. In other words, and we are back to a point that we have explored quite frequently in this blog, is there a way to use law to cure plunder? We know all too well that the law has worked remarkably well as a tool of plunder and that its potential performance against it is frustrated by some structural reasons including the fact that the law-makers are controlled by corporate power.
Is there a way out of this conundrum? what would be the three most important changes that are necessary to try to put law on the right side? I am thinking about the need to make the public sector once again capable of "doing" things rather than just outsourcing any activity to privates that get public money for acting. The restructuring of the actual capacity of the public system to do rather than outsource the activity should limit the opportunities to plunder. It is a first step necessary though perhaps not sufficient. But its necessity seems to me out of the question and the destruction of the public sector produced by so many years of neo-liberal policy is a structural damage that should be fixed now without hesitation.
Done this we should start thinking on what's the next most necessary thing to create a working and biting global legal system.
