41,975.  Regulations of derivatives transactions that are privately regulated by professionals is unnecessary.  (Banksters & Regulation & Wall Street)  Alan Greenspan, 24th July 1998

 

 

86,469.  So we expected someone who had been through that experience to be much more insightful, much more understanding, and much better regulated person.  And regulation means being able to let go, as it were – to enjoy a football game or a soccer game.  A more understanding – yes rational – but also a perfectly emotional person.  The regulatory aspect of the human mind would really be in charge.  Instead of being overwhelmed by our passions and our impulses.  That one would be master or mistress of one’s own passions.  Dr Harold Blum, psychoanalyst

 

 

86,470.  If we think to regulate printing, thereby to rectify manners, we must regulate all recreations and pastimes, all that is delightful to man … And who shall silence all the airs and madrigals, that whisper softness in chambers?  John Milton, Areopagitica 1644

 

 

86,471.  Whenever regulation increases, personal freedom decreases.  Alan Wilson

 

 

86,472.  Regulation creates a moral hazard.  P J O'Rourke

   

 

86,473.  He who seeks to regulate everything by law is more likely to arouse vices than to reform them.  It is best to grant what cannot be abolished, even though it be in itself harmful.  How many evils spring from luxury, envy, avarice, drunkenness and the like, yet these are tolerated because they cannot be prevented by legal enactments.  Baruch Spinoza 

 

 

86,474.  If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law.  Winston Churchill

 

 

86,475.  The general rule, at least, is that while property may be regulated to a certain extent, if regulation goes too far it will be recognized as a taking.  Oliver Wendell Holmes, Pennsylvania Coal Company v H J Mahon 260 US 415 415 1922 

 

 

86,476.  Although the functions of a regulatory commission are fairly straightforward in theory, in practice its task is far more complex and, in some respects, impossible.  Moreover, the political climate in which regulatory commissions operate often leads to policies and results directly the opposite of what was expected by those who created such commissions.

 

Ideally, a regulatory commission would set prices where they would have been if there were a competitive marketplace.  In practice, there is no way to know what those prices would be.  Only the actual functioning of a market itself could reveal such prices, with the less efficient firms being eliminated by bankruptcy and only the most efficient surviving, with their lower prices now being the market prices.  No outside observers can know what the most efficient ways of operating a given firm or industry are.  Indeed, many managements within an industry discover the hard way that what they thought was the most efficient way to do things was not efficient enough to meet the competition, and end up losing customers as a result.  The most that a regulatory agency can do is accept what appear to be reasonable production costs and allow the monopoly to make what seems to be a reasonable profit over and above such costs.  Thomas Sowell, Basic Economics

 

 

123,613.  Greenspan’s ideology won out … The nation’s most powerful banking regulator considered regulation itself obsolete.  (Federal Reserve & Economics & Dollar & Regulation)  Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve, 2013
