    the magic invisible finger of the marketplace!

    Anyone who argues this, and isn't wealthy, is a fool. As badly as regulation has been degraded and subverted in today's US, modern corporate impunity is mild compared to what it was like in Gould's time, when there was essentially none.

    I wish I could send those fools back 120 years, so they could learn why regulations were instituted in the first place. Or maybe we could just give them a vacation in Somalia.

      conservatives need a job in a foxconn factory in china or a textile sweatshop in bangalore for a year or two to get a clue about why regulation is important.
