Government's role in mine disaster :: The Boston Globe

Don Boudreaux proposes that it was not just absence of regulation, but presence of regulation that played a role in the Sago Mine tragedy.

The presence of regulation was and is the regulatory bias towards Eastern coal. Note that on Don's reasoning - with which I concur - Eastern mine workers are equals with the mining companies in favoring that bias.
