This sort of legislation is exactly the sort of intervention we
*should* expect from government-- in fact, I've wondered, since, if
all of capitalism's problems couldn't be solved by denying businesses
*any* sort of privacy, so that all their finances, processes,
policies, etc were necessarily public knowledge...
I don't even think Coke should be allowed a secret formula--
people need to know what's gone into their food!
But, as well, it should be easy to find out how companies treat
their employees, and how the prices of their products are
related to their expenses, etc etc etc...
Just a thought... (what am I overlooking?)
