As mais recentes (e tristes) estórias sobre a CGD apenas vêm reconfirmar a justeza do ponto de vista daqueles, em que o autor do blogue se inclui, que defendem a integral privatização da Caixa Geral de Depósitos. Inadmissíveis promiscuidades entre a política partidária e as empresas para além do conúbio regulador-regulado. É sobres estes aspectos que levam Steven Horowitz a pronunciar-se indo à raíz do problema:
Despite the hopes of those who think this can be solved (...) by better ethics laws or hiring "better" regulators, the revolving door that leads to capture is not a "bug" but a feature - the private sector benefits from being regulated and will always push to be at the table and influence the process.
The problem is not regulatory or ethical, but institutional. If you want to change the pattern of outcomes, change the rules. The only possible way to end the corporate control over the state is to reduce the state's sphere of influence down to as little as possible and ideally nothing. As long as there's the dead animal of the state (really: the citizenry) to feed on, the vultures of the private sector will keep showing up to get their share.
