Movie ID: VT1728
Movie Number: 1728
Description: Government control & regulation in the name of protecting the consumer has been growing at an explosive pace. Dozens of new agencies have been established, thousands upon thousands of regulations have been issued, & billions & billions of dollars have been spent. Yet the end effect is not to help the consumer but to hurt him. The end effect is rather to protect special groups of producers or to add to the power & importance of bureaucratic organizations. This has been the story since the time the first government agency in the United States was established supposedly to protect the protection for the consumer is the availability of the widest range of alternative supplies through free market competition.
