ABSTRACT
The article comments on the pros and cons of the government's consumer-protection initiatives in the U.S. The author cites several instances in which government protection is too excessive that it actually endangers citizens. He also reiterates the need for consumer protection to have limits, citing that there is a line that government intrusion in the name of protecting the public should never cross.
