More stock regulations

  1. Since the fashion today is more stock regulations, why isn't someone talking about reducing the size of these very large corporations.

    After all they did it to the phone companies and it worked out pretty well, except for lucent who went broke but we didn't have to bail them out, did we.

    Before that, as I recall, they did it to standard oil.

    If we reduce the size of these disasters waiting to happen, then what is wrong with that? I see only upside as long as we don't overdue it and turn them into mom and pop stores.
