$$$ Rick Harrison, co-owner of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop and a co-star of the History Channel reality series "Pawn Stars," told CNBC on Friday that over-regulation is creating a bad business environment and that a policy change is needed before anything can get better. Harrison also said the current economy is being fueled by cheap money.

"If we keep on printing forever, things will get bad. It's just a matter of math," he told "Squawk on the Street." [CNBC]
