Less Light

The Friday File: While switching to compact fluorescent light bulbs saves households $150/year, three-tenths-of-one-percent of household income, that so few have switched suggests that households don’t like these bulbs or are ignorant of the savings.

Otherwise, any savings must be reduced by the rise in household unhappiness from the loss of choice.
