you know I have debated this dichotomy with other of the same peasant stock as I. We wondered the same predicament as to why the costs are exasperating.  Well we couldn't really come up with the total answer we liked. Of course we have a copious amount of theories and suspicions but that really gets us nowhere. Are we really ever going to have the REAL answers as to why products and services, especially from monopoly corporations and government issues??! I would like an answer to that.
If anyone finds out please let the rest of the peasants know.. thank you
