"First, “deregulation” is misleading as many think it refers to an absence of regulation, rather than reform of regulation. Anyone who believes that regulations have been removed in, say, the banking sector, should go to the break room of any company and read the posters from everybody from OSHA to EEOC to the Chowder and Marching Society (look it up). Indeed, nothing has changed since Moses brought the Ten Regulations down from Mount Sinai except that they would never fit on two stone tablets."
