If your prices haven't gone up in 25 years (not even adjusted for inflation), what does that say about the quality of the shit you sell, or who is getting exploited in the process. It may seem like a petty thing to rant about in this day and age, but it hits close to home.
A friend of a friend bought an IKEA table for his apartment that was, as it turned out, infested with a strange bug. The bugs, likely from the third world country that manufactures their stuff, soon took over his Manhattan apartment. Several exterminators came out and tried to get rid of the bugs and had no luck. The poor guy finally had to move out of the apartment and sued IKEA. But hey- affordable mod design!
