The Federal Register is a daily publication of all the proposed and final rules and regulations of the U.S. government. The size of the register is often used to gauge the scope of regulation, and it’s been on steroids for decades.
According to the Washington, DC-based Competitive Enterprise Institute’s 2009 edition of “Ten Thousand Commandments” by Clyde Crews, the cost of abiding federal regulations is estimated at $1.172 trillion in 2008 – 8% of the year’s GDP. This “regulation without representation,” says Crews, enables the funding of new federal initiatives through the compliance costs of expanded regulations, rather than hiking taxes or expanding the deficit.
Investors that keep a watchful eye on Washington can recognize tomorrow’s opportunities from today’s wasteful government interference disguised as “solutions.”
