Report to The Boss
It’s time for the FTC to recap the past year for The Boss. (We mean taxpayers, not Bruce Springsteen.) The FTC’s Annual Highlights is in an online format this time — be sure to check out the message from FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez — but it’s still packed with stats 'n' charts to show what we’ve been doing to protect America’s consumers.
The Highlights cover a dozen key areas — from Challenging Deceptive Advertising and Protecting Consumer Privacy to Trending in Technology and Fostering Competition & Innovation. Although we think they speak in a more vivid format this time, the numbers still speak for themselves:
- 109 actions filed
- 125 orders obtained
- $741 million in redress or disgorgement ordered
- $63 million in civil penalties ordered
- 2 new rulemakings
- 13 new reports.
Take a look and and let us know what you think.
