- Title: Can Voluntary Regulation Really Work?
It has been said that pure capitalism will destroy the world. At the end of the day the goal of a business is to make money. We have seen numerous examples of businesses that shirk ethical guidelines and operate in the gray area in order to increase profits (Enron, Bernie Madoff, etc.). This week we have seen that certain sectors do not fall under the regulatory control of the government.
From a homeland security standpoint, should we be trusting private companies to be voluntarily accountable? What are some of the pitfalls of this method? Are there any benefits? Should some of the sectors be more closely regulated by the government while others are left to voluntarily do the right thing?
