Poorly Informed Regulation by Retailers

April 12, 2015

In the US regulatory regime nothing is more dangerous than a poorly informed retail regulator.

At least in the federal sector of the regime, studies are required and notice and comment is given before a costly restrictive action is taken. Not so in the retail sector.  The article below describes a unilateral action taken by a major retailer notwithstanding the fact that the federal government continues to examine the very issue upon which the retailer has rendered a final decision.

Furthermore the study quoted as a justification for the action taken by the retailer has been discredited by a national government.
