Federal Appliance Mandates: Bad for Everything (Guest: Jeffrey Tucker)

February 11, 2020

Led by President Donald Trump, Jeffrey Tucker says the public should rise up and demand the federal government stop imposing energy and water efficiency requirements on household appliances. Federal appliance mandates have produced a whole generation of appliances that don't clean, take too much time, undermine the livability of our homes, and threaten our health.
