Why do new LED house light bulbs burn out so quickly in comparison to older house lighting types?   

Because if the manufacturers build them optimally to spec, you wo0n't buy as many.

Cars, refrigerators, light bulbs. Good for the economy. Shut up and spend.

I get that about the planned obsolesence thing the 😈 Bernays Bunch of Capitalist greedballs came up with in the 1920s to keep the factories going full tilt, no matter how much pollution was, and still is, produced in the process.

However, LED lights really do last up to fifty times as long as an incandescent bulb, as long as they don't overheat. Placing LEDs in a wall enclosure with no air circulation will shorten their lifespan considerably. It is little wonder that they don't warn people about that. As you said, they want us to spend, spend, spend. Critical thinking skills are not encouraged.

The incandescent bulb originally did last about as long as a good quality LED light system does now, but they modiified the filaments so they would burn out much sooner due to the Capitalist planned obsolescene thievery. A movie was made detailing how this unethical thievery was carried out. Most people have been propagandized to believe the story about the deliberately shortened incandesent light bulb lifespan (MTBF - mean time between failure) is a "conspiracy theory". It was a real conspiracy to make a lot of money off of we-the-consumers. They took all of us to the cleaners for over 80 years. >:(

LEDs, like the Tesla EVs, are designed to last and last. That's why Capitalists hate them.   
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
