The Business Regulatory Climate in the United States in 2005 changed the referee made the implementation of projects to the attitude that all business people were guilty of some sort of unethical behavior. More rules were made in 2005 than any other year in US history. Regulators and Government Prosecutors like Elliot Spitzer went into attack mode by using the media to strike fear in consumers and citizens then used this to enhance the implementation, expansion of their offices and go on fishing expeditions to search for fraud, by filing bogus lawsuits based on hear say and try to assemble the case. This is a typical “prove you do not kick your dog” enforcement and statements that you are guilty until proven innocent.
In 2005, we saw many Junior just out of law school 26 years of government lawyers follow Elliot lead Spitzer is breaking the law by filing a half-truth in court, coaxing a witness to request bids and then use public relations and media to hide their tracks. We saw this type of aggressive attacks on the economy through 2005, the government used blackmail tactics and then issue media releases to prove to the public that they were the heroes of civilization and purification Corporate Corruption once and for all. Only one problem it only damaged the attack on the Free Enterprise from government regulators pretend duty to the country and to break the law, compromising family names and filing falsehoods court. I predict that in 2006 we will see more of this.
