IJ’s Christina Walsh tackles deregulation of interior designers in Florida and shows there is not a shred of evidence to support the interior design cartel’s (lead by the ASID) most cherished myths about the supposed effects of deregulation. Less government red tape means greater opportunities for interior designers and more choices for consumers. Christina explains why.
UPDATE: In response to IJ’s myth-busting video, the interior design cartel has modified its false claim that “26 states believe the health, safety and welfare of their residents requires that Interior Designers be regulated.” The cartel now asserts that “While only 3 States, plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico license designers, 26 other states believe the health, safety and welfare of their residents requires that Interior Designers be regulated through various means.” But this is just the same old myth dressed up in more ambiguous language. For a detailed explanation of why this new claim is just as false as the cartel’s old claim, visit http://www.ij.org/about/3757
