Oh, agreed. They provide the illusion of working - which, itself, is
enough to stimulate the economy and do a bunch of other good things -
but as to what they were originally intended to do, they fall down.
Still, most large corporations buy into the illusion enough that their
actions are based on a belief that the laws work; if they think the law
will protect them against all assaults, why invest in further defenses?
