Donald Trump, an American business magnate, investor, television personality and author took over a Wollman Rink renovation project from mayor of New York City, Ed Koch in 1986. The rink was closed in 1980 for announced 2 1/2 years of renovations, but stayed unfinished for 6 years. Trump completed the renovations in three months. Trump is a private developer, and because of this, he was not encumbered by the regulations of the city governing public construction projects. He paid for the entire renovation with his own money, enforced tough penalties against contractors who fell behind schedule, and was $750,000 under budget
Regulations are necessary to keep the people safe. There are driving regulation to prevent accidents on the road, and health regulations of food companies to keep poisons out of our foods. It is natural that the government makes laws that limit dangerous actions for the welfare of a larger group.
Clean water is great. So is clean air. We take clean air and water for granted in America because we have government regulations that make it happen. Just look at a picture of the smog hanging over Beijing if you want to see what happens when the government doesn't have regulations that protect their people and the environment. It's important that regulations make sense and don't punish business for no reason, but we can not have a great society without reasonable laws and regulations.
