OMB Watch. July 2005.

OMB Watch compiled this useful chart of the predicted costs of various federal regulations, including OSHA standards, and the actual costs (“The Going-Out-of-Business Myth”).  It includes an “Ex Ante” and an “Ex Post” column. Very good for a quick look at the industry’s history of exaggeration.
