How much did the government regulate business practices during the Gilded Age

Answers

Answer 1
Answer: Not much really.

The government did not really govern the big business and they could basically do what they pleased. But as the journalists and writers and the workers started bringing all the bad things the big businesses were doing to the light of day the government started intervening just a little. A landmark law passed at the time would be the  Sherman Act that was against the trusts. 
Answer 2
Answer: It was a complete laissez-faire (hands off) government. There was no regulation. That's why the United States had child labor, terrible working conditions, long work hours, low wages, and no health codes/safety plans.

The focus of the times was directed towards military capabilities, while the Athenians were more interested in comfort and culture.  It was the oligarchy in Sparta that put a war-like attitude as its first priority and best met the needs of Ancient Greece.  These factors empowered Sparta and led to the development of an authoritative and potent state.  Other contrasting issues included women’s rights, social classes, and value of human life.
