Tesla Business Model in N.J. `Unlawful': Appleton: Video - Bloomberg If you watch today's Bloomberg debate between the university professor and the independent dealers' lobbyist, you will clearly hear the lobbyist say: "This statute, which has been on the books for more then a decade in New Jersey, is intended to protect the public interest in price competition and public and highway safety." Let's go over to his club's website, Home Page and their contradiction to that is there in back and white - When NJCAR was founded 80+ years ago, its mission was simple: protect and serve the interests of automobile retailers. Today, NJCAR defines its mission as follows: To protect and advance the public, government and industry interests of franchised new car and truck retailers; To provide accurate and authoritative advice on statutory, regulatory and legislative matters affecting the interests of automobile retailers; To maintain and enhance the quality, scope and nature of membership services offered by the Coalition to New Jersey’s franchised new car and truck retailers; To constantly evaluate existing services and aggressively explore new options, in order to ensure that the Coalition continues to serve the essential business needs of automotive retailers; and To build upon the Coalition’s reputation as one of the Garden State’s leading business advocacy organizations. I don't see much there about the public interest, saving consumers when there is a recall, saving consumers from evil manufacturers trying to charge too much, and so on. It's all to help the dealers!!!
