Balancing Act

South Carolina’s chief consumer watchdog works to strike a balance between protecting consumers while remaining mindful about the regulatory burden on businesses. At the same time, Carri Lybarker is managing the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs with less than half the budget and far fewer staffers than the agency had a few years ago. On this program, we discuss the fifteen industries supervised by the SCDCA and the growing number of consumer complaints. Tom Bartholomy of the Better Business Bureau of Southern Piedmont  and Dr. Dan Wueste of Clemson University join the conversation.
