Default Re: Why must some companies make price increases that are sneaky--not straightforward

I like the lead "NEW AND IMPROVED" which may well be that the quantity has changed or the packaging to accommodate the deception.
Once, whilst taking to a buyer at a major detergent company, I asked how they would make money selling product Made In the USA to the former USSR. He responded that the New and Improved was from the company diluting the product with water. Since it was competing with what the government was selling, they still had a better product.

They got away wth it.

Also, while he would not admit it, I did tell him of my suspicions about WAL-Mart asking for the same considerations so they could undersell. He declined to respond. I don't have any proof it is true or false but,,,,;
