In this post at the Foundry, Diane Katz contends that government regulation adds needlessly to the cost of automobile manufacturing.  She writes: General Motors Corp. (GM) is recalling 18,941 Chevy Camaros (model years 2013 and 2014) for violating Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208—Occupant Crash Protection. Why is the company doing this?  GM is recalling 18,941 Chevy Camaros because the air bag warning label on the sun visormay peel.
