Smog made Los Angeles City Hall a shadowy presence in 1953.

It’s kind of weird that *some* people have taken this view to an extreme, because even icons of the free market like Milton Friedman have often [said they thought pollution regulations were an essential part of the system](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KH0O_JjH06k). The free market doesn’t work if people are able to use a resource without paying for it. One of our most useful resources is the air we breathe. If people can dirty it up without paying a price, then we’ve completely undermined the efficiency that is gained from a free market.

That being said, you can’t introduce regulations without giving the bureaucracy a chance to invade the original intentions of the regulations.

> No one really understands politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems – of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind. – Thomas Sowell

So I don’t see this as a blanket excuse to allow government to tackle every problem it sees. The same Milton Friedman who argued for certain targeted regulations also [fiercly attacked others](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAjOryNaDkA).
