A new study is claiming that President Obama’s controversial “Cash for Clunkers” program negatively impacted the amount of money Americans spent on new cars, and had no overall impact on how many new cars were sold.

“Cash for Corollas: When Stimulus Reduces Spending,” a new study out of Texas A&M University, suggests...

Last summer’s Cash for Clunkers program artificially boosted used car prices by requiring destruction of the clunkers, thereby restricting the supply of used cars.

That was bad enough for people looking to buy used cars.

But the market distortion caused by government intervention is hitting Rhode Islanders particularly hard.
