“Consumer advocacy” groups argue through emotion. They find one or two “horror’ stories or personal tragedies to advance new government regulations or mandates. These stories can be powerful, but they often bear little resemblance to the real world. Unfortunately, policy is too often based on emotion. The Consumers Rights League will work to base it on facts.
One of our missions is to produce independent research to thoroughly document the real-world choices consumer’s face. Specific horror stories often mask enormous benefits enjoyed by the overwhelming majority of consumers. We will report these benefits.
We understand that if you torture statistics long enough they will confess to anything. Unfortunately, consumer advocacy groups often massage the data to promote their lobbying agenda. As a result, our research will also ‘pull the curtain back’ on their research fraud.
