Description

Government regulation of business continues to be one of the fastest growing areas of the American economy. The bulk of the growing regulatory budget is devoted to newer areas of social regulation, such as job safety, energy and the environment, and consumer safety and health. Unlike the traditional regulating commissions, the agencies engaging in this type of regulation often have jurisdiction over virtually all companies, including many sectors of the economy which are generally not thought of as being regulated.
