Inspired by Pete and Sarah’s avatars, I whipped up my own self’s personal not-so-spandexed rendition: (Not pictured: Mann Stetson, Shillelagh (before & after […]

scarcity.

by Rob Friesel

File this under the “Semi-Mindless Pondering” department… I’m wondering how much of articles like this one and this one are hype. There’s a fine line between running out of stock because you didn’t anticipate the demand and attempting to cultivate an increased perception of value by engineering a stock shortage.
