    Bob,

    You asked:

    Do all organizations need regulators or some other form of oversight?

    1. "To err is human."
    2. The Founding Fathers set up a system of checks and balances.
    3. Psychology research (references needed) consistently show that people rate themselves better than they are and that they do not see their own errors.
    4. See the attached picture.
    5. You may decide the answer to your question. 
     
    Take care,

    Every investigation of a consequential event reveals, assuming appropriate lines of inquiry, that

     

     a) the organization and its regulators were not sufficiently effective in finding their own problems,

     

     b) that their oversight organizations were not sufficiently effective in finding, reporting and getting attention to a), and 

     

    c) that the investigations of earlier consequential events did not address either a) or b).

     

     


    You can put the above on a PowerPoint slide if you give me credit
