Pandora said:I'm no economist, but ideally doesn't a free market eventually regulate itself. If a company is doing something bad wrong and consumers find out about it then the company looses sales and is forced to changed their business practice or parish. Just look at Martha Stewart. She did something bad, she lost business because of the negative attention. I promise she will be more careful with how she handles herself from now on!
If you force everyone onto some fair market structure then there is no completion which drives companies to improve. Why do anything better or more efficiently if a company can make the same about of money by continuing with the status-quo. It would kinda be like a monopoly right? You'd get mediocre product and no other alternatives, which is terrible for consumers! You end up with a depressed economy like most socialist countires.
Edit: Do we have any economists around here that knows about this kinda crap?
