    Bookshops tend to charge high prices;its little wonder that online sites such as the Book depository in the UK,(which has free postage) have become so popular.

    And I’ve noticed that since the advent of BD,traders on TM selling books have adjusted their prices t some extent too.

    I see that a prefab house building company is in receivership.

    The company builds transportable houses for $139,000.
    Perhaps Shane Jones should use some of his $billion and invest in it and keeping the 25-odd workers gainfully employed.

    Shane Jones can’t just give them money, they have to make an application and get it assessed by an independent panel to see if it is a good investment or not.

    Cheers 🙂

    “Shane Jones can’t just give them money.” Ha ha yeah right. Are you forgetting who’s really in charge?
    Remember that waste-to-energy project on the West Coast?
    MfE said it didn’t add up either economically or environmentally but Shane still gave them $350,000.
