So today the tech world is upset over New Jersey’s rule that bans the direct sales of cars - effectively shutting down the Tesla model (go to New York if you want your car).
They join Texas and Arizona in this. In all 3 states you will be able to go to a showroom, but not discuss price or how to buy.
First statement: I think that this is ridiculous, and is nothing more than an attempt by auto dealers to keep out competition. So, yeah, I am against it. Maybe, however, I am missing something here and someone can tell me why the dealer model is better.
Second position: The three Republican Governors are anti-business hypocrites. ASSuming that Republicans are pro-business, they are instead going to push business out of state. The counter to this might be old-school protectionism I guess, but maybe someone can defend these three states from a Republican perspective.
