Stealth Inflation


I guess you did not want to anger the paper industry. Fewer employees, working more hours, effectively lowering the hourly wage... good example - my former employer.

My favorite is the [almost] universally smaller rolls of bath tissue, aka butt paper. Some states are considering lawsuits. With a smaller roll I use more to obtain the same effect. And it is not due to inflation of my posterior, in fact I weigh 50 pounds less that 20 years ago when I got married. A substantial amount of that loss is posterior. We used to make fun of baggy pants, now we are one!
