I have had the help of many colleagues in arriving at the final version of this paper, presented at seminars at the University of Florence, at LSE, at Bristol University and at the University of Aberdeen. I should like to thank all my critics. Special thanks go to Keith Vincent, my assiduous researcher and colleagues Damian Chalmers, Pavlos Eleftheriadis, John Griffith, Imelda Maher, James Penner and Richard Rawlings for detailed comments.
