    Although this is 11 years ago, it’s no different from today with the debt ceiling and all.

    That’d do it for sure!

    It’s interesting how many from all political persuasions think a business “just passes it on.” Sometimes they do. Sometimes they can’t. If the price is already on the verge of being too high for what the market will bear, then you can’t “pass it along to the customer.” Not without wiping out demand. No demand, no sales. A minor increase might not be noticed, but if it’s something that’s not a necessity that one has to have, then a price increase may price it out of the market.
    Supply and demand gets taught in practically every college, but it’s a rare business that “gets it.”
    Just today I was looking at some cables online where the price for the cables was a reasonable $3 but the shipping was an absurd $7 each. One can get the same cables for $4 to $6 at local stores. That online business won’t sell many by doing that kind of nonsense. Not much demand at that price.
    Another computer outfit a couple years ago got the bright idea to raise their rates for shipping from $5 to $10 for medium-sized items to 50% of the cost of the item. That only lasted a few months. I imagine I wasn’t the only one that quit buying anything from them.

    True, but these days it is possible to have a successful web store! Actually smaller ones probably have a better chance than the big ones that have all the startup debt to kill off first.

    If they gave Paige a credit card, they’d have to raise their debt ceiling considerably!

    That’s basically paraphrasing the government’s plan, is it not?
