A decent question............................
“How could our society have regressed to the point where a bridge that could be built in less than a year one century ago takes five times as long to repair today?”
-attributed to Larry Summers from this post titled, "Larry Summer sits in traffic, has an epiphany on regulation
A hint to the author's idea of a simplistic answer to the decent question might be found here:
"The Federal Register, the daily log of federal agency regulations, proposed rules, public notices and executive orders, clocked in at 80,035 pages in 2015, among the highest on record. The rule book was 2,620 pages in 1936, the first year it was published."
