ABSTRACT
Although the ideal economy is one in which government intervention is minimal, in reality, most businesses and industries are subject to some form of government oversight. Businesses are required to pay taxes on their incomes as well as their real estate (in addition to withholding income taxes for employees). Many must be licensed and/or registered with the state in which they are incorporated. Furthermore, they are subject to laws that cover hiring practices, access for the handicapped, environmental impact, and other major issues.
