Thinking about your business
Is a big part of ours

Shipping the bar code was the real cost

santa suits

Due to having many lazy friends I now own rather more santa suits than I ever imagined I would.

But full santa suits selling for $6.50 do raise some questions about the global economy. (Top Bargain Canberra Centre)

In the meantime we all get to enjoy our cheap Chinese junk.

So does this article make the Santa suits tax deductible?

Like an off the elf tax system?

Another reason why the Secret World Government should impose a Universal Carbon Tax – Now!

It’s truly incredible when you think about it.

For $6.5, about 15 minutes worth of labour in Australia, we can mobilise the labour and capital required to pump up oil from deep within the ground, ship it to a refinery, refine it, ship the petrochemicals to a factory to produce synthetic fabric, ship the fabric to another factory to make the Santa suit, and then ship that to Top Bargain for you to buy.

Of course the real cost to produce it is more than $6.5, but the difference is paid by overseas workers, the environment, future generations etc.
