As far as I know, it is the only product which is so undesirable and so uneconomical, and would do so poorly in the open market, that the U.S. government must:

  • Massively subsidize its production;
  • Protect it from foreign imports (which are produced much more cheaply and efficiently) through high tariffs; and
  • Mandate its use by consumers.

What is it?
