Laws that restrict how a business conducts itself is a restriction on their freedom but has anyone ever thought that the same law is also a restriction on the consumer's freedom as well by controlling what they buy? When the government mandates what a business is to do it decides how that company is to interact with the public. Some of these rules are good in that they protect the consumer from fraud but what about things that go outside of that? A company that wants to make fast cars that get bad gas mileage that the consuming public likes is providing them with a car that they like. The choice of the consumer is being fullfilled but when the government decides that that company can't make those cares because it wants them to make different cars that they think the country needs then can you say that the wishes of the individual consumer is being fullfilled? I'm saying, don't these regulations also regulate the consumption end as well as the production end of the economy since the government controls what is being produced thus controls what is being consumed? It makes me wonder what is the true intent of business regulations are? Do they exist to control the business or do the exist to control what is being consumed by the public?
