Why do lawmakers and all those bureaucrats create so many unnecessary regulations? Do they sit in a back room somewhere, smoking cigars, looking for ways to hinder business, to prevent business from making more money? No. I do not believe that. I doubt any unnecessary regulation has ever been intentionally created. Yes, laws and regulations have been created that did not work as intended, and some are created that are not liked because the regulation adds cost to the operation of a business, but those laws and regulations are always created for reasons.

When politicians grip about unnecessary governmental regulations they almost never give examples of what those regulations are. There's a reason for that. If they gave specific examples and the true reasons for those regulations, many people would understand the regulation and even agree with it. For example, why must a pallet in a warehouse be a certain distance from the exit door and the path leading to it? The warehouse owner might gripe that he is losing valuable storage space, but in an emergency the people in the building need a clear path out, and the emergency workers need a clear path in. Regulations are often created to prevent bad things from happening. They are ways to force owners to spend money to do their business in a responsible way, preventing owners form cutting corners.

All regulations are well intended. The question is if they really work and if there is a better way to achieve the desired result.
