All regulation is good, the government should completely control the economy
Labor condition laws
Product safety laws
Tariffs and other import/export regulations
None of the above
No vote, as usual, I can detect a conservative/libertarian agenda a mile away.
But, "product safety laws" should be completely scuttled....This safety mania has become completely ridiculous.
While I believe that the government should protect the environment to reasonable degree, provide some unemployment insurance, and most importantly protect people against theft and fraud, the government's role in the economy should be kept to a minimum. Typically government tries to fix a problem, thinking that it's God, and it just makes things worse.
Tarrifs don't really help the economy, they just prop up certain industries when the resources could be more efficently used elsewhere in that country.
I voted for labor conditions, product safety, antitrust, copyright, and environmental.
These are generally good regulations for society because they are directly beneficial for the people (with the exception of environmental regulations). These regulations keep the worker from being exploited, and protect from chaos. The environmental are indirectly good for the people. We need to protect the environment from destruction.
I withheld my vote for the minimum wage, because, I believe it is good only to an extent. An excessively high minimum wage (what we have here in MA compared to previous years/other parts of the country) can force an employer to hire less than they normally would. Don't get me wrong, minimum wage is beneficial to society to oversee that workers are not exploited for labor. I would not like to see minimum wage raise any more here is MA.
I also withheld my vote on tariffs import/export regulations, because I'm unsure of my opinion. On one hand, I believe free trade can be good for the economy. On the other hand, tariffs against certain countries are good political strategies for morality against a regime. I believe the trade blockade on Cuba should be lifted, but trade restrictions on North Korea should be held in place.
Sadly, I do not know what incorporation restrictions are.
The regulations listed are pretty general. There are plenty more...
Intervention regulation against failing markets (AKA government takeover), regulation on the prices of a commodity, regulation on gas guzzling vehicles, sin taxes, etc.
"All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language...No man is an island, entire of itself...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." - John Donne
I voted for everything except the minimum wage and tariffs / trade barriers. Most of the things listed are necessary, because they either protect the public (e.g. environmental laws, safety laws) or they prevent economic inefficiencies (e.g. copyright laws, antitrust laws). But the minimum wage and tariffs are just gratuitous meddling in the market, and the government should not be involved.
I wasn't really sure what you meant by "incorporation restrictions." Do you mean zoning restrictions, where you can't open a business in a residential area? If so, I support that.
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.
