 One wonders if the volkswagen problem is endemic to all industries regulated by their colleagues at the agencies. Since the companies vet and establish the regulatory hurdles, they would have every reason to design a way to pass the tests. The drug companies with their supposedly double blind studies of individuals free of other diseases who complete the tests, from a carefully selected group to start come to mind. The problem must be legion? Is this a reasonable way of thinking or am I overly cynical. I believe my father wrote a book or two about this starting with his cynicism tests for policeman in Behind the Shield.

A candidate for some measure of malfeasance in this 'technologically enlightened' age is surely the click through advertising piece; for example, advertisers paying based on number of clicks.
