I live in Westfield Massachusetts, also known as the "Whip City", for producing more buggy whips than anyplace else in America, when horse and buggy transportation ruled the day. There are lessons to be learned from the decline of the whip industry, which NEPGA members may want to ponder in light of this decision by the Mass Supreme Court. Adapt or die, is the takeaway lesson from the Whip makers of "Whip City". We still have one, part-time, manufacturer of buggy whips in Whip City, which may provide some hope to those Companies that want to "hold the course" during the energy transition.
