Regulation

I Believe the Germans Have a Word for This

|

Incumbent food truck magnate in Austin develops totally-civic-minded-and-not-at-all-protectionist "health, safety and environmental concerns" over a massive increase in the number trucks that have sprung up to compete with him . . . 

 . . . demands city council pass stricter regulations of his own industry . . . 

 . . . now faces a bureaucratic nightmare as his own fleet of trucks can't pass the regulations he insisted were necessary to protect the public.
