    Nice reminder, now that the current administration plans to cut out food regulations. Soon we’ll be eating recycled plastic particles.

    Oh, come ON.

    Everybody knows that banks no longer need regulation.

    That was PROVED completely as soon as Trump started calling Elizabeth Warren ‘Pocahontas’.

    .

    And everyone knows that any regulation, especially if it is effective, is socialism and will make us just like Venezuela.

    Because the state government had a cap on retail electricity charges, this market manipulation squeezed the industry’s revenue margins, causing the bankruptcy of Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and near bankruptcy of Southern California Edison in early 2001.

    Talk to the (invisible) hand. Which also happens to be deaf, dumb and blind. And stupid.

    It sounds like satire, but this argument was actually made by members of Congress, TV pundits, etc.— executives should get enormous “golden parachutes”— even (as with Enron) when gross criminality is involved— so companies can attract “the best people” (like the Enron execs).

    When last seen the invisible hand had dyed itself white and accepted a day job shilling for a boxed hamburger add-in product.

    SOME of the Enron crooks, but, yes, that is indeed encouraging to remember.
