package downsizing is the newest way to raise prices. Everyone notices the extra $.25 you have to pay for something but hardly anyone notices that a "pound" of coffee is now 13 ounces or a "quart" of juice is now 28 oz, etc. What's the cost of the new size...bet that the per oz. cost is higher than before.

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
