Group Launched to Put Consumers First

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 27 agosto 2010

Washington, D.C.  Today in an effort to protect the rights of consumers globally, a new action-oriented coalition was launched to defend and advance the genuine interests of consumers and to ensure consumers are no longer ignored in the political and policymaking process.  The Consumers Alliance for Global Prosperity (CAGP) seeks to educate and activate concerned citizens in response to costly collaboration between environmentalists, protectionist industries, big labor unions and retail companies.   CAGP said it would focus on a wide variety of issues involving green protectionism, green jobs and leftist consumer and corporate citizenship policies that often hurt more than help the poor both in the US and globally. One important issue to consumers is the ability to have access to high-quality, affordable paper products.  “American paper companies, big labor unions like the Steelworkers and radical environmentalist groups like the Sierra Club and the Rainforest Action Network are colluding to erect trade barriers to block low-cost import products from Indonesia and China. Consumers are the ones who will be harmed, as the price of paper will rise, affecting the cost of almost every good and service imaginable,” said Langer.  “What’s most egregious is that uncompetitive US paper companies on the brink of bankruptcy are being bailed out by US taxpayers through a special interest loophole for their waste, “black liquor,” which gets preferential treatment when it is used as a fuel.” Langer added, “We must once again make the defense of the free-market the focal point of consumerism to ensure that individual liberties are reasserted and defended not just for American consumers, but also for those striving for economic freedom and progress in the developing world.”
About CAGP: Consumers Alliance for Global Prosperity is an action-oriented alliance of advocacy groups that promotes economic growth and pro-consumer policies across the world.
