Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

There’s Very Little Reason to Trust Business Insider


It’s literally in the name: “Business Insider.”

In an attempt to defend the TPP, Business Insider drags the dead horse out of the closet to scare Twitter users into thinking that IPhones will skyrocket in price. However, BI manages to forget the part where the TPP literally hands near unlimited power to its secret lobbyists.  It’s the kind of power that if passed, would have disallowed consumers to sue for compensation if the IPhone failed in any manner.

The fact that IPhones are $500+ to begin with are the layers upon layers of subtle mark ups that Apple and its suppliers arbitrarily put into place. They know full well the upper limits of which Americans are willing to pay for them, and the secrecy they’re able to get away with when they do it is staggering.  Perhaps if more jobs were based in the U.S., a wider spread of consumers would become more open to the idea of parting with their hard earned dollars. The resulting demand would more than likely entice Apple to create consumer grade product lines to stay competitive.

IPhones are good, but it’s the brand name that carries it.
