Alex Mayyasi noticed that the bars of soap at his Walgreens in San Francisco were locked up. If he wanted say, some bars of Dove soap, he had to ask an employee to unlock the case for him. Why was this? He looked at this question for his latest post at Priceonomics.
At The New Inquiry Charles Davis discusses stealing from evil corporations and although I see the point (corporations don’t always play by the rules, so why should we?), I don’t see how it makes walking into a retail story and stealing a flatscreen TV an OK thing to do, although “Corporations Steal, So I’m Stealing This TV” would make a pretty good #slatepitches piece.
