I am not surprised when we see financial turmoil, recessions, business failings, etc. that we increased calls for more regulation. In other words, when times are bad, we often blame a lack of regulation or point toward a need for more regulation.
But I am surprised by the general lack of introsepction on the matter. And I think this comes from both lefties and righties. How come, then, when times are good, we do not see symmetrical calls for less regulation? Can you really have it both ways?
