New featured column: Virginia Postrel, "Regulatory glamour -- and its casualties"



The newest entry in our Featured Column series is Virginia Postrel's must-read meditation from last week on the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and its high costs, the "glamor" of government regulation at the moment as the solve-all and cure-all for public fears, and the disdain of some in the prestige media for controversy over a law whose harshest effects are falling on sectors of the economy with which they may be only vaguely familiar, such as thrift and consignment stores and their shoppers, apparel and toy crafters, motosports dealers, secondhand traders in children's books, and so forth.
