    In many ways, most often by public intervention or government options in the market which establish us as a mixed market economy. The government protects consumers by having agencies like the FDA and the ATF regulate our foods, medicines, and other consumptive products. This keeps us from devouring and purchasing unsafe products. The government also offers public options to typically private-sector produced goods and services. For example, while health insurance in the private sector is readily available from many sources, the government provides medicare and medicaid for those that desire it instead.

    By prohibiting and prosecuting companies who target vulnerable consumers from deceptive, immoral or unethical businesses. That is why Trump U is going to trial for fraud.
