Problem

Abusive deregulation

Other Names:
Government circumvention of protective legislation
Claim:
The stated reasons for deregulation and the elimination of red tape are often merely a subterfuge to favour particular interests, especially those of the business community. Abusive deregulation can endanger public safety by setting aside carefully studied provisions, notably for the protection of the environment.
Counter Claim:
It is sometimes necessary to eliminate regulatory and legislative measures which handicap the ability of businesses to ensure their survival and competitivity.
