THE WISDOM OF LETTING THE MARKET PICK THE WINNER:

Ikea to sell only energy-saving LED lightbulbs (Adam Vaughan, 8/10/15, The Guardian)

Ikea will no longer sell halogen and 'energy-saving' compact fluorescent bulbs from September, when it switches all its lighting sold globally to super efficient light-emitting diodes (LEDs).

The move affects over 2.3m bulbs sold by the Swedish furniture chain each year in the UK and an undisclosed number in its markets elsewhere in Europe, North America, Asia, Africa and Oceania.

All it took was banning the bulb we didn't want.
