I didn't think I'd have to detail the abuses of the robber barons. But I guess the LNF con/libertarian contingent enjoys being exploited.

You are dodging the issue that the US became a massive economic power, and the middle class positively exploded, during the timeframe that you are describing as some sort of economic calamity.
  

If FaceBook memes and twitter accounts can sway elections, then either accept it as the new reality or let's figure out a new form of government. Because democracy is therefore unfit in the modern age.

I don't think you understand.  No one is making it illegal to develop low cost housing. 


I don't think you understand. In fact, I am certain you do not.

Quote:
“While land use regulations sometimes serve reasonable and legitimate purposes, they can also give extra-normal returns to entrenched interests at the expense of everyone else…Zoning regulations and other local barriers to housing development [can] allow a small number of individuals to capture the economic benefits of living in a community, thus limiting diversity and mobility.”
https://www.brookings.edu/blog/social-mobility-memos/2016/08/16/zoning-as-opport...

Quote:
Zoning and HUD laws makes it possible to create low income housing.  Capitalism won't do that.  They are for profit, not for charity.


Your bias for regulations and against capitalism is keeping you from learning how land use policies harm the poor.

Quote:
There are also many examples that show that licenses protect the consumer.


Let's see em.

Quote:
The definition you share in another post does not support your redefinition of regulations. 

Nonsense. You're grasping at straws.

The details will have to wait until I have time for it. And I'm not sure it won't fall on deaf ears and/or closed minds.


How open are you to the idea that progressive era regulations filled a conservative/ reactionary purpose?

Your opinion pieces does not give me a better understanding, all it does is support your narrative.  Now I could pull up ops that support my narrative as well.  Should we continue to play these games or stick to the facts.  I know you hate facts.  You can’t even grasp the true definition of regulations.   Prehaps you need to get a better understanding of regulations before you continue to play your foolish games

"Opinion pieces" lol

You're just dismissing the facts because they don't jive with your priors.

Do it. Let's see what you've got.

You could not care less about the facts. Your mind is made up and you have no intention of learning anything.

Now you want to change the subject... typical.

Let me give you some advice, Wadsworth. Run from any discussion of regulations. Run as fast as you can.

You should not use a blog as fact.
