Keith recommended a book call “The Death of Common Sense: How Law is Suffocating America.” (Philip K. Howard).
It is a SUPERB and easy read. Very concise writing style punctuated with a myriad of compelling examples. IMO this should be required reading for anybody involved or interested in regulatory policy.
The book is out of print, but used copies are available (I used Amazon).
Keith, if you are out there, thanks for the recommendation!
