Yes regulation is vital and moreso sound government policy so that Americans don't play with credit but become producers. In the old days if you wanted to start a Kelloggs or a Coca Cola factory, that was an American way of creating revenue for yourself and spurring the economy.

In the coming months as Spring arrives their will be replete possibilities for business in the area of recreational motorcycles, four-wheelers and big ticket items which people looking for cheap entertainment will buy, thus stimulating the economy with big ticket items. When "bubba" wants to go fishing in his favorite lake as is the heroic sailor, then he'll buy value boats to take to the high seas in his own backyard; this is big ticket items sold in quantity and wholesale across the south where the market for the ubiquitous fisherman is ripe. By 2011 0r 20122 this market will be bursting at the seams!
Opportunities such as these alone will stimulate the economy and generate millions of dollars in revenue for local businesses and workers; and it is through small business and selling products that make big money will the economy recover so much faster.
