When will you be able to get your own jeans?
In a recent article in the Australian Financial Review, author James Poulos and the team of writers at the Financial Times explored the question of how people will ever get the pants they wear.
While Poulos did make the point that people who can afford to buy jeans, should buy them, he said in his article that while people with less disposable income may choose to buy a pair of jeans instead of buying them in a store, the question is really a lot more complex.
Poulos’ piece argued that while it was the right thing to do to buy clothes in stores, it would be a terrible thing to buy them on the internet.
He argued that it would make the shopping experience much worse, because people would buy clothes online in places like eBay or Amazon rather than at a store.
Poulsson said he didn’t buy the argument that the internet was better, but rather the idea that online shopping was a good thing.
In other words, online shopping is just a better option because it’s less expensive, Poulsson argued.
Poulson wrote:When I look at the picture below, I see a big red rectangle.
There are four dots in the red rectangle, which means it’s worth buying.
But when I see the picture of a red rectangle on the far left side, I don’t see four dots.
It’s all dots.
So what’s going on?
There are some issues here.
For starters, there’s no way to know how much the four dots are worth.
That’s why Poulson included a price comparison for each of the four corners.
In the picture above, you can see that the three red dots are $4,500, and the two yellow dots are only $2,400.
That means the three yellow dots can be bought for about $4 in the internet shopping world.
The red dots, of course, could also be worth more.
In reality, buying online is expensive, and if you can afford a pair, you’ll likely be able afford the red dots.
But for a typical person with a $200 monthly mortgage, that’s not likely to be a significant problem.
So Poulsson’s argument is largely correct.
However, there are some things that the Poulsson team missed, and they’re a little less obvious in the picture.
The first is that Poulsons argument for buying online doesn’t include things like the cost of shipping.
For instance, the Poulssons argument assumes that you can pay less for shipping because you already own a bunch of jeans, and that if you order online, you won’t need to buy another pair.
The problem with this assumption is that you’re assuming that shipping costs are cheaper than buying clothes online.
While shipping is an expense that some people have to incur in order to buy clothing online, it’s also a reasonable cost to consider when you’re shopping for a pair.
Puns for the PunsThis is the part that really bothers Poulseners.
He argues that the only people who will buy jeans online are people who are willing to pay more for the same amount of jeans.
Poulssons point about how these people will choose to spend money online is not particularly well founded.
As a matter of fact, PoulSons paper argues that in the long run, online retailers will ultimately make people less happy.
Poulos made a similar argument in his piece.
The paper argued that if there are people out there who can’t afford to pay full price for jeans online, there will be more people buying jeans online.
That argument, though, is flawed.
People who are poor can afford online purchases, and buying jeans at a higher price than they could at a retail store doesn’t hurt them.
In fact, buying jeans on the cheap can help people out.
The only people to whom purchasing online is a good option are people with disposable income.
The vast majority of people with a low-to-middle income will not want to pay the full price to get jeans online from a shop like TJ Maxx or Urban Outfitters.
Polls show that a majority of Australians would rather buy jeans on a site like Amazon, and Poulis paper argues, as a result, that it’s unlikely that online retailers are going to be able compete.
It is important to remember, though.
People can and do shop online for a variety of reasons, including the ability to pay less and the ability for the shop to get better returns.
In any case, it is not the case that people with low-income incomes will stop buying jeans from online retailers.
Poulssen’s argument about the internet being better is a weak argument in the grand scheme of things, but it is still a weak one.
The reality is that online shoppers are not the only ones who can and will shop online.
