Récompenses BAN

Every month the Consumer Choice Center awards an institution, person, or organization with the Bureau of Nannyism or short BAN Award. The BAN Awards recognize the work of an individual or organization that has made major contributions to advocating limits on consumer choice. This award serves to recognize extraordinary abilities in disregarding consumers and evidence-based public policy. The award was created by the Consumer Choice Center to draw attention to the important role politicians, lobbies, and advocates play in limiting consumers’ choice and ignoring them in the policymaking process.

Les critères de sélection: The Bureau of Nannyism (BAN) is a group of consumer choice advocates that discusses nominations on a monthly base and awards the nominee with the most innovative or most blunt actions against consumer choice with the BAN award.
