Goldpapers

Today I visited Sultan Center as mom wanted to pick up a few things from there. While paying at the cashier I just looked at the side rack with all the international newspapers there. I felt really good that people in Kuwait can read all the news papers even if they are away from home.

But something caught my attention. I was shocked to see the price. The international newspapers start from KD1.500 - KD8. The most expensive one is The New York times weekly which is for KD 8.

Then I started thinking do people pay that much for a newspaper? Would I pay that much for a newspaper? NO!!!!

Would you pay KD4 for a Kuwaiti newspaper if you were in England or Australia?

When i came to fashion business i used to wonder who would buy a 5KD tshirt , later i realized that people pay 100KD for a tshirt just because its a brand.... I dont think TSC will sell newspapers for KD 8 if it didnt have buyers...

Demand and Supply can be manipulated.

Oh i see newspapers are victims now.

Whether anyone buys it or not is upto their personal choice.
How the selling works is upto the sellers choice.

Get a life. Its an economic fact.
