Whether by accident or by design, the end result of government regulation on market activity is cartels and monopoly. In fact, large corporations are the biggest lobbyists for government regulation in their market sectors, as they know that smaller businesses with less capital are less able to comply with the myriad of rules and regulations. The result is less competition, higher prices, and lower quality goods.

Ironically, even anti-trust and anti-monopoly regulations serve to lock-in existing products and prices, therefore stifling any innovation in that market sector.

Yes, government is here to help protect you from evil corporations. Just look around to see how well they have succeeded!

    Wait, my childhood was full of misinformation! I always thought it was odd that I HAD to stay at the hotel on boardwalk and park place...

      The lesson of Monopoly is the banker is the real winner.

      So perhaps my childhood was not so misinformed after all...
