If You're a Consumer (and You Are) the Government's Ignoring You

Regrettably, when it comes to government policy, the interests of consumers are often neglected. If governments are interested in what's best for consumers, here's a simple suggestion: stop favouring existing producers and players, be they government-owned corporations or private sector corporations. If governments wish to actually favour the average consumer, they must abandon their habit of protecting existing cartels, producers and vested status quo interests, over the more invisible but most important interest: the consumer.
