Chapter 06 - The Constitution and Regulation of Business CHAPTER 6 THE CONSTITUTION AND REGULATION OF BUSINESS I. LEARNING OBJECTIVES The purpose of this chapter is three-fold. First it introduces the basic concepts of the Constitution and how they create authority for the regulation of the business community. Special emphasis is placed on the role of the Commerce Clause. Second the chapter introduces the student to regulatory issues that are impacted by the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution. Special emphasis is placed on the protection from regulation offered to the business community by our basic freedoms. Students should recognize that the very purpose of the Bill of Rights is to hold those freedoms that are considered basic aloft as legal principles to be applied by the judiciary. In this way, the courts, in applying these constitutional protections, protect the minority from the whims of the majority. Third, the chapter provides an introduction to administrative law through an examination of regulatory agencies, their creation, purpose and function. II.
