I don't think so. Just look at all the editorials and headlines (in
mainstream papers read by most people). It generally goes like this:
"deregulation has failed".
Most people don't have the time or inclination to look into exactly what
policies the "deregulation" specifically refers to, and don't know that it
refers, strangely, to a lot of regulation. The lesson most people will learn
from this is that "deregulation doesn't work". Whenever anyone talks about
implementing "deregulation", the inevitable response will be "don't you
remember what happened with electricity when we tried that?"
