"It should come as no surprise to see that government regulation, posing itself as the protector of the little guy and the public interest, has the exact opposite results. Regulation that is backed by the coercive power of the state is almost always used to forcibly prevent competition in the marketplace, cartelizes industries by making it harder and harder for smaller businesses to enter a field, and is often lobbied for by large corporate interests as a nearly cost-free way to avoid the discipline and constantly changing climate of the free market."
