If conceptions of how capitalism as a global system is regulated constrain change at a macro level, more local structures, cultures and competing ideas about the ordering of society also inuence the development of policy, creating diversity in national and even city regulatory regimes within the broadly neo-liberal framework of ideas. How this diversity in local regimes is generated and maintained in the face of the universalising processes of neo-liberalism can be explained in a number of ways: local path dependencies, professional cultures, denitions of problems, opportunities and risks.
