Nathaniel Burney's comic about overcriminalization is a nice summary for those unfamiliar with the issue, but it actually understates the problem, because it doesn't even mention the "responsible corporate officer" doctrine, whereby an executive is not just responsible for knowing thousands of arbitrary laws, but ensuring that his employees aren't violating these thousands of arbitrary laws—with the concomitant cost to investment and job creation.
