“The American Action Forum estimates that businesses waste 87 million man-hours per year complying with regulations. Consider that Ford workers can assemble an automobile in around 33 man-hours, and that it takes approximately 3 man-hours to grow 100 bushels of corn. In terms of labor alone, government costs us 2.6 million cars or countless baskets of food, added on to the other products that could have been built if the labor sitting in government offices were employed in a productive capacity.”
