Even More Consumer Surplus!

Happily I inform you that Amazon.com just cut the price it charges for my book Globalization by a whopping 20 percent — from $55 to $44!!

While a bargain at any price, you’ll now want to buy countless copies for yourself, loved ones, friends, neighbors, your mailman, and pets.

Now THAT is fighting inflation!

It's embarrassing that there are no reviews by readers at all about this book at Amazon. I can't put in a review since I haven't read the book. However, if you have read it and you thought it was a good read – then put your two cents down at amazon.com. Sadly, people tend to shy away from buying a book if there are no reviews. I'd buy a copy myself, but we're in the retrenchment phase right now paying down credit card debt.

Now maybe my library can afford it!

(Kicking myself). I bought the book a few weeks ago, but haven't found the time to read it yet!

The price cut is a mistake. Name a country that tried cutting the price of your book. You can't, can you. But if you could, maybe you should move there rather than messing with prices here.

Amazon price matches your purchases up to 30 days. If you bought it since then ask for the lower price.

This is (unusally for this level-headed blog) poor advice. I gave it to my dog and he was so bored after Chapter 3 that he barely managed to finish it. Not for pets. The postman was ecstatic, however.

Thanks for the heads up. Amazon is refunding me $11.95.
