Random Rants, Raves and Ramblings

Big increase in the price of paper ahead.

European journalists have a wonderful fascination for the question who will pay when a change in the cost of raw materials, a disaster or a change in regulations makes a certain product or service more expensive. The company or the customer? Journos must live in a world where companies have a source of income that isn't customers. That’s frightening.

Or perhaps it’s a clumsy way of asking whether, in response to an increase in gas prices, companies will adjust their profit margins downward. I’m not sure which of the two ways of putting the question sounds silliest.
