Re: Federale Communista Communique

Easy, if one has worked in a control position of the sector to be regulated they cannot enter a control position of the government agency that regulated them. And have it in their contract that they cannot go back the same way.

Allowing a cable exec to get into the FCC or FTC is a bit like letting the fox guard the hens.

Forever? Or for a period of time? If the FCC is being staffed by technical types (arguably it isn't, but it should be), won't they be hard-pressed to find employment after their tenure, considering their expertise and focus?

Not discounting your proposition, just thinking through the whole thing.

But don't we want people who are experienced in the industries they are regulating?

Is it better to have bureaucrats who know nothing of business or technology making decisions?
