@magicalclick: I'm implying that regulations should be judged on their outcome, not on their intention.
If a regulation has a negative outcome, it's costing us more then it's benefiting us, it should be canned.
There are plenty of very good and very useful regulations, that have provided safety nets and safe guards, these are the gems we need to keep. I'm not against all forms of government, regulation and taxes. I just think the system is too big, too heavy and is now collapsing in on itself.
And USA wants to stop trading with its enemy and enforce its foreign policy..........
Let's judge this regulation on it's outcome.
Do you believe that;
a) it has brought Iran and the USA closer together
b) it has driven them further apart
The beauty of free trade is that it doesn't matter if you hate each other or not, you have something they want and they have something you want. Both are willing to put aside their differences for their own interests.
Make em rich, make em educated, make em think for themselves and make a buck in the process.
That's exactly how India and China are doing it and they are not making enemies, but friends.
