Regulations: Why?

In a perfect society and world, regulations would likely not be necessary. But we do not live in such a world. What are regulations and why do we require them? Regulations originally designed to serve as protecting the safety of the general public have, of late, been cast as a problem for businesses, corporations, and the economy. Is this the case? Why and how do regulations work?  Dr. Kyle Kattelman will help us “unpack” the story.
