• Companies are only going for profit.

    They really don't care about us consumers, A great example is that companies are buying up affordable housing and renting it out, In turn the housing prices increase and people are forced to rent, Also because of this people get huge loans and then become literal puppets, Wage slaves just to pay off their absurd mortgage or rent.

  • Yes, Because of construction companies and building codes

    Without regulation, We wouldn't have building codes to help ensure our homes and schools are built structurally safe and secure. Construction companies are notorious for cutting corners when there is less regulation. This is well documented, Especially when it comes to fire hazards and roofing. Many companies will use cheaper less reliable materials, Ignore potential safety hazards, And often just skip over certain aspects of structural integrity just to finish before a deadline.

  • Well, Yes and no.

    To certain extent, Yes, The government should regulate businesses. But they shouldn’t be able to control every step the business decides to take. Sometimes, Businesses have to be regulated to insure that there aren’t any laws being broken and that every one “plays fair”. They should be monitored for certain reasons like racism, Sexism, And an unfair or unsafe work environment. But other than that, The government should leave local and smaller businesses alone.

  • The government should regulate business

    If we regulate business the government can gave more control over what business owners do. Now, In some ways this could’ve bad considering the government has done some unnecessary things in the past. For the most part it will prevent the business owners from cheating their customers or finding a way to self benefit from a situation. Sure, It might not work effectively all the way but it is still something to keep these sort of things under control.

  • Regulations aren't always taxing or expensive to companies.

    Not every regulation the government imposes on companies results in taxation. For example, A regulation that has been enacted since the late 1930s regards child labor. This regulation bans children under the age of 14 from working. This is so they can receive an education and then become a more productive member of the workforce. This is a regulation helps companies by being able to employ more educated workers, And helps other companies that rely on educated workers. This regulation strengthened the workforce and helps out other companies. Regulations may not help companies in the short run, But in the long run, Companies are better off having the regulation than they were with out it.

  • Regulation allows for safer and more ethical business.

    This process is very debatable as to whether or not it is beneficial, though I think the real matter lies in who is arguing whether or not it is beneficial. Large corporations can be expected to argue in favor of deregulation. However, for the greater good of the country, regulation should be praised; it leads to safer, more ethical, and more equal-opportunity business.

  • Not a matter of lessening

    This argument is simply prodding at whether or not the government should regulate business whatsoever, Not whether or not it should be reduced in its control. Unregulated business would result in a sense of carelessness by corporations as they no longer would have to accompany a standard. Lower pay as the minimum wage wouldn't exist, FDA Regulations for safe and edible products could be tossed out the window and even children could be induced to work jobs that are either exceedingly difficult or Downright dangerous as the minimum working age would be removed. Opposing arguments On this page prod at this being a "free" america, which is in reality just not how the world works. "Free" does not imply free to do anything you want, "free" implies that you as a person have more liberties and personal freedom than that of what other countries may not have setup. Take this as an example. Drug Smuggling. In America anyone found guilty for this offence only receives prison sentencing and potential fines, Whereas in Singapore, the penalty for being found guilty of drug smuggling Is death with no argument. Take What liberties you've got for now america, It will only get worse if these are the kind of arguments that permeate today's society.

  • Yes to regulation

    Without government regulations, companies will cheat everyone until the world ends. However, the government does not help with some things, but more then once they have given us freedom in the long run. Yes the government would get more power, but without it the economy would be a mess right now.

  • Companies have no reason to be ethical!

    Without regulation, there is n reason the companies have to tell the truth or use ethical practices when making their products. Don't we have a right as consumers to know what's in our Twinkies?
    Regulation isn't just taxing. It's making sure the companies print truthful ingredient lists or advertising claims!

  • No because that's communism

    The government was made to regulate politics. Companies were made to regulate business. The government should stay away because it always try to help poor people who can't and don't do anything meanwhile penalizing the rich for being financially successful (70% tax for the richest Americans). It always try to restrict people who actually contribute to the economy in order to grab more power for itself. That's communism and based on historical evidence, Communism never works.

  • The government is bullshit.

    Large corporations have worked for and earned the money that they have received in profits. If they are charging too high, Few people will buy their products. If they abuse workers, No one will work there. If they harm the environment, People will boycott their products. If they deceive customers and investors, They will lose customers and investors. Because of this, Corporations have been shaped into what the people want. Corporations are not entitled to be governmental puppets, They can make their own decisions and control their own affairs. The government needs not to step in and make them good companies, Demand and pressure from the citizens ensure that already. One thing people might say is that companies exploit workers, But that is the workers’ own fault for not being aware enough to find another job. There is nothing unethical about using another’s vulnerabilities to your advantage, It’s all fair competition. Another thing they say is that it causes wealth inequality but America is a diverse country, Meaning not everyone have equal abilities and not everyone can succeed. If you are poor, Blame yourself and not your boss. If you are poor, Get yourself out of poverty through hard work, Not sit around waiting for damn liberals. More regulations means more harm for companies and it’s unhealthy for international competition, Especially with China. Capitalism is different from feudalism because you don’t just inherit your wealth - you earn it. This is why the government should stop being so envious of entrepreneurs’ many successes. Instead, It should go regulate itself, Seeing as it currently has trillions in debt.

  • No they should not

    They should not regulate business practices because businesses need to make it on their own. They need to figure out what works for them, And what doesnt work for them. And no one but the business owner would know whats best for the business other than them. That is only soem of the reason why i believe that the government should not regulate business practices.

  • Where’s the freedom

    Business should be supported by themselves, The workers and the buyers, The economy will have their interest on the business but what about the other people, The workers have opinions and interests, As well as others. I believe that businesses should be able to regulate themselves in their jobs not others.

  • Keep the government out of the economy

    Less regulation leads to a more open flexible economy. Also because then companies have to compete to keep workers and compete for sales of goods. If there is no regulation then the economy can never worry about being forced to one standard. If the government gets involved then they charge higher taxes and impose work regulations causing spending cuts and Job cuts. Therefore a government hands free economy is more competitive and will be stronger will better jobs, More jobs, And more overall consumer competition.

  • Job losses and we'd pay too much money

    Over Regulation Costs American Businesses $1. 8 Trillion Per Year Sweden recognizes that when you cut red tape and reduce. Regulation imposes costs on companies and these costs typically get passed along in the form of ​​higher product prices. Consumers, In turn, Respond by purchasing less and/or searching for alternative suppliers. Reduced sales, Combined with additional outsourcing by other companies for their material inputs, Can lead to job losses. ​

  • No government regulation

    As someone who has studied economics, I realize the consequences of government regulations on businesses and possible employees. The truth is that government regulations are EXPENSIVE to businesses and the outcomes of this can be catastrophic. For example, when businesses are trying to be in line with these regulations they have to invest a lot of time and money to suit those changes and in the process have to cut spending. So, people start to lose their jobs because of these regulations. When people have to be paid higher wages, it leads to more people losing their jobs because small businesses especially, cannot afford to take on these wages. What I have learned from economics is, the economy functions at its best when it works on its own. The free market knows what price is the best and they have the ability to break down monopolies through competition. Government regulations in a free economy do not work unless there are extreme circumstances and I believe that businesses should have the ability to function on their own.

  • Raises Prices on Goods

    Regulations should be cut because if a business is regulated, it would need to pay for the regulations, which in turn increases the price consumers have to pay. This makes people not want to participate in the United States of America's market. Also, it generates "tape" and reduces world competitiveness.

  • No the government shouldnt

    The government is going to control our business anyways. They control it enough as is and shouldn't control it more than what they are now. They need to back off some more and maybe everyone wouldn't be mad that they are taking money and trying to make us pay for things we don't need.

  • Less Government, a better economy

    Let the free market off its leash. Capitalism needs to be let loose and not restricted by government. I understand laws preventing companies from doing harm to employees, but people are not forced to stay at that job. People have the right to make their own choices and do not need government making these choices for them. I feel that the Government is basically everybody' s parents telling them what to do and how to do it. If a company has horrible employee policies than people will work somewhere else, meaning that company won't have any employees to run the business, meaning it will fail. Logic over emotion.
