Just How Much Pre-crash Stock Is Still Out There

Recommended Posts

I've just bought some new laptops for work, a couple of Toshiba's with 3 year warranties.

One of them had a free upgrade to on-site warranty, during the registration process I was asked to send proof of purchase because of the manufacturing dates.

Manufactured in Oct 08, purchased June 09.

So the laptop is already 8 months old and has clearly been sat in a warehouse.

Just how much over capacity is there in the economy?

You know Arkwright's shop in Open all hours.

I reckon we can sustain that level of economy well.

How many people wear clothes until they wear out, then mend them and wear them again? Who has ever undone a jumper and reknitted the wool?

We expect too much. We have become spoiled, much perhaps as the romans were just before their empire fell on their heads.

As long as Nurse Gladys Emmanuele is involved, I'm all for it!

That'd be classed as abject poverty these days. Not even the unemployed could be expected to wear old clothes and not have a mobile phone - basic human rights.

Bring it on. Show these whining f****ers what a bit of austerity means

...and how do modern "Just-in-time" business practices cope with this over capacity in an inflationary or deflationary scenario...?

Funny that. We recently finished rolling out about a thousand PCs to a government department, at the end of the rollout the PCs were over a year old and were obsolete models by then.

Eh, I grew up with little money, me mum did her best on a very limited budget and as a kid I’d have liked the new designer gear rather than the bullying for not having it but I never really grew out of the habit of using things until they fell apart and quite like it like that.

My parents did better than that. They instilled in us an ethos that scorned deezyner stuff, and treated prestigious labels as something to avoid. It became a positive thing: not I want a foobar but what an idiot, paying over the odds for a foobar. You could kind-of sum it up as why pay for a label, but that's not really the whole story, and even today I will, for example, treat any hint of as seen on TV as a reason to avoid something.

As for disposing of perfectly good stuff .. well, I have plenty of things from the 1980s, and even a few from the 70s. Just a couple of weeks ago I disposed of some old clothes, after forlornly concluding they'll never again grow big enough to accommodate the middle-aged paunch. That despite the fact that a replacement from Primark costs less than a meal out!

I'm exactly like that, I always remember being ridiculed at school for having dunlop trainers instead of adidas then being gobsmackeed that they became the in thing. But even at school found it amusing that my dunlops did a year and my mates nikes lasted 6 months :lol:
