Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This slim book, written by a former chairman of the Federal Trade Commission, discusses the past, present, and future of the consumer movement. Commissioner Pertschuk is a vigorous champion of consumer rights, and he recounts here with justifiable pride a string of regulatory victories: the elimination of cigarette advertisements from TV, freer sales of low-cost generic drugs, keener competition in doctors' and lawyers' fees, and more. He attributes recent deregulatory trends to hordes of corporate lobbyists, who were able to work together toward the creation of broad governmental policy, and to the increasing reliance of federal legislators on the contributions of political action committees. In all a fascinating appraisal of recent government action and inaction." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
