Unintended consequences of legislation are sometimes hard to predict.
But, it’s convenient that our politicians help us out by giving their packages of legislation names that should clue us into to what those unintended consequences will be. Whatever the name of the legislation, assume the opposite will happen.
For example, the name of the Obamacare legislation is the “Affordable Care Act,” so I expect it to make health care less affordable. Not so.
In 2009, the stimulus bill was passed under the name “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act”. Still trying to recover.
A good question is why does legislation so often produce the opposite of the intended result?
The cause of this is misdiagnosis of the problem and aiming solutions at those misdiagnosed problems distort things and cause more of that problem.
