In this view business firms are conceived of as economic actors, and governments and their state agencies are considered the only political actors. The author argues that while private regulation has resulted in some substantive improvements in corporate behavior, it cannot be regarded as a substitute for the more effective exercise of state authority at both the national and international levels. We compare two countries that represent two very different models of government action.
