    Interview: Welfare Regulation When I asked my mother, Deann Bodkin, about a contemporary issue that she had a strong opinion of, she was unable to answer right away. Not being an opinionated person, she had to spend some time reflecting on her values. She realized that she had an opinion on welfare in the United States and was 'for' the regulation of welfare. My mother held a strong belief that even though not all people on welfare abuse the government assistance that they are granted, many individuals do. Her exact phrase on her stance is, "Me and several other people work hard to provide for our families. I am not against people receiving help in their lives, but I am against people using assistance for things other than living necessities. I would like to see more regulation in welfare". After asking my mother how she formed her opinion on this issue, she explained that her entire life is the reason that she is 'for' government regulation. She began by saying, "I was a single mother who had just gotten out of high school. Even though I had my parents for support, they did not have much money to help me. I got a job, simple as that.

    • 1914 Words
    • 8 Pages

    Regulatory Disasters and Response Regulatory frameworks sometimes fail. It’s a fact. Life, its participants, and the society we create in a state is far too complex for laws and regulations to work or to be conducted as intended every time. But by no means does this permit the failure of regimes. Quite the opposite; for the acceptance of failure brings with it a realisation to implement laws and regulations with the utmost care, and to learn from past mistakes- and there has been huge ones.…

Food companies have integrated their products into television entertainment and commercials, opening up a now expansive industry, but not without controversy trailing close behind. One major contention revolves around food advertisements on television targeted towards children. Closely related is the epidemic of childhood…

    In examining the social bottom line, we have considered our ethical obligation to our consumers, but we should also remove the self-interested lens of ethical egoism and consider our ethical obligation to societal moral rules and the law. While proceeding to distribute at-home reports in spite of the FDA may not necessarily break the law, it disrespects the authority of a government agency dedicated to protecting the public’s health. Ignoring the FDA is a deviation from the norms that have been…

    Regulation, in its broadest implication, represents all the rules of order enforced by a presumed administration of government, with regard to the practices of those under the government 's control. Historically, many regulations prescribed by oppressive autocratic leaderships have caused sequences of misery and torment for the ruled. Granting all this, the fate of Spain in particular, took a dramatic yet positive turn in the early 700s when Muslim forces invaded and reigned over the Iberian…

    Regulatory Agencies

    • 3 Pages

    The agent-principal relationship is between Congress (the principal) and the independent Agency (the agent), as Posner argues: one is delegation of authority by legislatures to administrative agencies. As mentioned earlier, legislatures cannot continuously regulate a complex area; they must delegate much of the regulatory function either to courts or to administrative agencies. In the area of economic regulation the legislative choice has generally been the administrative agency rather than…
