VIDEO: FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz Chats With Consumerist

Earlier today, Federal Trade Commission chairman Jon Leibowitz visited the Consumer Reports compound in Yonkers, NY. While there, Consumerist’s Executive Editor Meghann Marco managed to score a sit-down interview with him.

The two discussed an array of topics, including impostor scams, the fact that younger consumers seem reluctant to report problems to the FTC, and the agency’s role in attempting to maintain a competitive marketplace. They even talked about this year’s Worst Company In America Final Four, though Leibowitz said he couldn’t really say much on that topic… because he did so poorly in the earlier brackets.
