Baker's dozen


When you  buy a dozen rolls and get thirteen, you have a "baker's dozen." Baking was among the first industries subjected to government control and regulation. Soon after the baking profession was established, the king of England found it necessary to regulate it. The public bakers put on the market unhealthy products of short weight and count. 

To fix this evil, exorbitant fines were imposed upon wayward bakers.  The bakers, in response and to ensure avoiding clashes with law, gave thirteen to the dozen, from this practice we derived the happy "baker's dozen," an early example of government involvement in business.
