Overhauling an overly legalistic society

I just watched this TED presentation by Philip K. Howard which touches on the issue of the growing complexity of our legal system which I have been mulling over for some time now.

Thankfully we don’t have the same ever-present threat of litigation that Americans seem to live with each day and in virtually every sphere of their society but we probably aren’t that far away from that sort of society. The Consumer Protection Act alone will take us quite a bit further along that road than we are now so its worthwhile to take 20 minutes to watch this video and consider the implications of new laws that have been and are being passed.
