Selective interference from government

When discussing the technological backwardness of Europe, Martin Pawley quotes examples to show that there is more government interference in Europe than in the us. However, the withdrawal of Railtrack's exclusive option, on the face of it, seems an example of less market control and distortion while the AOL/TimeWarner merger suggests a market stitch up. Whether a government interferes or supports almost always depends on whose interest is being considered.
