It's very tempting to adopt a "just give me the formula" kind of thinking.

To over-regulate when we have lost the ability to self-regulate.

To make excuses for our lack of power when we could have greatly influenced how a business keeps its promises by empowering ourselves (see/thank you Frank Eliason).
