What a wonderful letter to the editor in the Summer issue of Brandeis Magazine from Karen Bernstein, the chairman and editor in chief of BioCentury publications. It reads, in part:
We don't need yet more regulators — who have no idea how to run a successful company — to lay yet more burdens on us. Indeed, adding regulations only increases costs and discourages hiring. I know this has been said many times before, but those who don't run companies somehow don't seem to believe it.
Growing the size of government will ultimately result in the kind of economic stagnation and government bankruptcy that we are witnessing, not just around the world, but at the state and municipal level in the U.S. and soon, we will see, at the federal level. The numbers are quite clear for those who do the math.
So many entrepreneurs agree with this, and yet so few are willing to say it publicly with their names and their company's name attached.
