I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

TIEW, cost/benefit - cash rich - time poor is fed by cheap disposable products from Asia. This feeds our increasing mounds of non recyclable waste.

They change the colour of garden furniture encouraging one-season use (no storage). They change trivial design changes and colours of everything to encourage new purchasing.

Of Made in Japan, in the 50s they were imitators and my father said their weakness was poor metal and bad screw threads. Made in Birmingham was a guarantee of life time use. Which is the better business model?
