March 19, 2016 I get a letter from The Wall Street Journal telling me they will raise my newspaper subscription rate to $131.25, quarterly. I go on line and find the price to be way less. I call customer service and they lower my rate to $98.97 quarterly.
One reason I like to read the Wall Street Journal is almost daily reports of this and that company getting caught doing unethical, criminal, and immoral activity. I call it white collar crime. Just below that high bar of despicable activity is corporate greed. “See what the market will bear” is corporate America creed; I mean greed. It is sort of ironic that the very news paper that brings me stories of corporate greed is itself an alleged participant.
