Law's Detour

Peter Margulies

NYU Press

This chapter examines the Bush administration's legal detours in the regulation of business and how it evaded accountability both at home and abroad. It first considers the Bush administration's use of private contractors such as Blackwater and Halliburton to facilitate foreign ventures as well as its inability or unwillingness to make contractors accountable. It then turns to the Bush administration's economic regulation in the domestic arena and goes on to discuss its antiregulatory bias in the subprime mortgage crisis. It also explores the role of the Supreme Court in business regulation, along with the Bush administration's failure in the areas of environmental regulation and consumer safety.

Keywords:   legal detours, accountability, private contractors, foreign ventures, economic regulation, subprime mortgage crisis, Supreme Court, business regulation, environmental regulation, consumer safety
