The Trump Effect: Business, Anticipating Less Regulation, Loosens Purse Strings

But in the administration and across the business community, there is a perception that years of increased environmental, financial and other regulatory oversight by the Obama administration dampened investment and job creation — and that Mr. Trump’s more hands-off approach has unleashed the “animal spirits” of companies that had hoarded cash after the recession of 2008.Some businesses will essentially be able to get away with shortcuts that they could not have under a continuation of Obama-era policies. The coal industry, for instance, will not have to worry about a regulation, overturned by Congress and Mr. […]

America Has No Appetite For Animal Cruelty

The recent public outcry around the USDA‘s removal of animal welfare violation records from its website reinforces a clear truth: Americans are united in their opposition to animal cruelty, and they want more – not less – information on how animals are protected in our society. But when it comes to farm animals, the blocking of vital information – whether on the USDA website or in the form of anti-whistleblower state “ag-gag” bills across the country – doesn’t just happen through government. It also happens in local supermarkets, where information about the treatment of farm animals raised for meat, milk and egg products is actively hidden behind misleading and meaningless food labels. Consumers Care About Welfare A recent national survey, commissioned by the ASPCA, found that more than three in four consumers are concerned about the welfare of animals raised for food. Seventy-four percent are paying more attention to the labels that indicate how farm animals were treated than they were just five years ago. Unfortunately, these labels don’t meet consumers’ common sense expectations. For example, sixty-five percent of consumers we surveyed believe the term “free-range” ensures that the animal spent most of its time in a pasture when, in reality, there is no legal definition of that term for pork, beef or dairy products. For poultry products, the size, duration, and quality of birds’ outdoor experiences on “free range” farms is not defined. In some facilities, these “free-range” chickens spend most of their lives indoors. […]
