Ralph Nader's new style

March 1985
Washington Monthly;Mar85, Vol. 17 Issue 2, p12
Ralph Nader's new style of consumer protection. No longer depending on the government to defend the American public, he is advocating that people develop power against sellers by developing `buying groups.' He has turned his network of organizations over to associates and spends his time on `empowerment' projects.
