“They’re talking about this stuff as if it’s hugely significant to the economy, has the potential to boost growth in a serious way,” says Philip Wallach, a senior fellow at the libertarian R Street Institute.

He points out that the $570.4 million a year saved through deregulatory actions in 2017 is peanuts in the grand scheme of things. “It’s kind of hard to understand how those numbers match up with the claims of really having taken deregulation to the point where you’re setting businesses free,” says Wallach.
