Marginal Revolution: Resale Bans in Japan

Marginal Revolution: Resale Bans in Japan

I just learned from Marginal Revolution that Japan forces car-owners to have expensive maintenance done on a regular basis. While it may have something to do with maintaining air-quality in crowded Japan, the fact that consumers are forced to spend money like this makes me (and the folk at MR) think that this regulation is really about expanding the market for various special-interest groups. It seems that this system is being expanded to cover many electronics also. This system effectively bans the sale of used products.
