How many of you watch the consumer warnings? The information is always available if you have the time and resources to investigate. Lifting the rug covering consumer product failures takes a lot of effort. Marketers are unwilling to allow bad publicity to threaten their paycheck. By the time product failure is exposed, marketers have a positive spin already prepared. By the time consumers are alerted in mainstream media, damage has already piled up. Who determines the number of casualties before consumers are alerted? The current system is filtered by corporate protectionism. This is a dangerous condition that laws have not been effective in preventing. Money drives this condition. Accountability is a thing of the past. The next American administration holds the reins to turn this problem around. Hopefully protecting people will override protecting corporate profit. The focus should be, protecting the consumer is protecting profit.
