Missouri is close to banning Tesla's direct-to-customer sales
Free trade has been prevailing in the US and it has become the back bone of the economy but this isn’t the case for Tesla every time it tries to bring in support for its direct selling to customers. Elon Musk hasn’t been getting so lucky when it comes to the freedom in trade. From what we have got from the KOLR 10 News, Missouri's legislature has silently included a ban on the direct selling on Tesla Motors' direct-selling model and this was shortly before the long-standing bill was passed through the Senate.
Initially the Bill HB 1124 was only concerned with the sale of off-road and all-terrain vehicles. But soon after this, a new provision was included between the sale of off-road and all-terrain vehicles. The new provisions blocked Tesla's dealership-free business and Missouri is the not the first or the only state to do this. Similar legislations have also been implemented in New Jersey, Arizona and Texas.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
