    HWX is back in my podcast feed, link works like a champ in iCatcher. Thanks for the quick fix!

  7. We have reported this to iTunes (they have not picked up the new feed yet). In the meantime here’s the fix:

    1. Open iTunes. Delete your current HWX podcast feed. 

    2. Under File, choose subscribe to podcast feed. 

    3. Paste in the following link: http://ricochet.com/podcast/feed/Hinderaker-Ward-Experience

    4. Click OK. 

    5. Listen to dulcet tones of Hinderaker and Ward.

    It has been almost 20 years since I have spent time in VZ and I have not checked out anything re. the critical shortage of toilet paper. I can say that this is type of thing has been a pretty normal occurrence there for many decades. Normally the Govt. imposes price controls (Usually immediately following currency deval. but not limited to this) and strongly resists any price increases. this results in firms selling at lower than their replacement cost, so voila!!! they make less to lose less or shut down entirely. Product shortages are almost automatic following price controls. I will bet that many VZ folks stockpiled supplies if in fact, controls went in.

    Without going to the trouble to check it out, I’d bet $5 that something like this happened in this case. 

    The normal strategy is for companies is to increase price in anticipation of deval. or suspected price freeze. Then one of two things happens:

    1. raise to little and they lose money and production slows or stops.

    2. Guess right or higher – but then can’t access foreign exchange to buy new raw materials – so production stops or slows.

    Welcome to the VZ
