US presidential candidates debate regulation

REGBLOG, a very useful source of information and comment, carries today an analysis of the first of the campaign debates between Democrat Barak Obama and Republican Mitt Romney in their presidential race, which took place last night.
Says Regblog "one of the most telling moments of the debate came when the moderator asked the candidates for their views on the level of federal regulation in today’s economy. Obama declared that “it appears that [they have] got some agreement that a marketplace to work has to have some regulation.” Romney responded that while he agrees that “good regulation” is needed to support a functional free-market economy, government rules can become excessive and have “unintended consequences.” The full transcript of this part and the rest of the debate are equally interesting and worth checking out.
