Is U.S. Business Overregulated? How Government Destroys Our Ability to Compete Globally, by James Sagner
Ask Jim Sagner which candidate in the presidential primary knew the most about economics, world trade, business regulation and its crippling effect on America’s economic health and he’ll tell you that none of the candidates really seemed to know enough. A clear sign, perhaps, that they, like most Americans, could use a lesson on the effects of over-regulation provided in his book: Is U.S. Business Over-regulated? How Government Destroys Our Ability to Compete Globally. American business, Dr. Sagner writes, now faces a worldwide economic crisis. American companies are no longer able to compete effectively in the global marketplace, due in large part, to outdated and unrealistic U.S. regulations. Is there a practical answer to the deepening problem? Jim Sagner says there is: get rid of laws that stay on the books long after they are needed and cripple America’s prospects. Dr. James Sagner is an internationally recognized expert in financial management and economic analysis and he has chaired numerous finance-related conferences internationally, and is a Rockefeller Fellow.
