Almost every systemic change involves legislation and the state at some point. There are a few exceptions, such as the rise of new online infrastructures for retailing. But every movement involved in profound change, from the environment to equality, has depended on recognition of its principles in law. New legislative and regulatory architectures can be the keys to unlocking systemic change, whether through new rights or new trading or building standards, social and environmental performance requirements, or new ways of handling or measuring value.
