The impact a political-legal environment can have on business can cause so many craters so as to make that business look like the moon. It was a political-legal environment that gave birth to the corporate personhood doctrine and that gave rise to the corporate world we live in today. Political-legal environments can only hope to regulate markets, and market regulations will most certainly have profound impacts on business organizations. An example of the kind of bone headed impact a political-legal environment can have on a business one need look no further than American auto makers, the electric car and California. For whatever reasons, several of the auto manufacturers in the United States began developing electric cars which they leased to satisfied customers. Then, California decided it would be a good idea to mandate to American auto makers that if they expected to sell their cars in California they would have to invent some new technology reducing carbon dioxide. Presumably, California expected to see an increase of electric cars being sold by auto makers. What happened is quite the opposite and the auto makers took a hard look at their electric car program, uncertain how to market a "clean vehicle" without admitting the piston engine vehicles are dirty, realizing that much of the profit from a piston engine vehicle comes with the replacement of parts and not so with electric cars and finally, realizing that a State, not even the State of California can make them build technology they don't have, nor can any state even make them keep building the technology they do have, and so, the auto makers killed their own electric car program and this was the impact of a political-legal environment.

Political /
Legal / Regulatory The Political / Legal / Regulatory environment is often a direct consequence of the political parties in power, which represents the popular opinion of the citizens of the region. If the citizens are, for example, pro-Big Business then probably taxation will be modest and there will not be a lot of stringent rules about environmental considerations.If the citizens are very concerned about safety issues, for example, then there will be a lot of rules and regulations governing things such as transportation safety, which will make it more expensive for some companies that have big shipping costs.
