So we should allow the corporations to create thier own standards and regulations, and just stand idly by? Who knows what the corporations could do if they had that amount of unrestricted power; no more unions, 18-hour days, child labor, etc. would all be most likely put into place.

By allowing the economy to "fix itself", i.e., do nothing, it will only send the world into a state of financial ruin. Hoover's inaction during the Great Depression led to farther hardships.
