Downsizing Your World – What Does This Mean Consumers?

Grocery Store Items Really Are Shrinking Before Our Eyes

By Mando Wood

No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you at the grocery store–that box of cereal really is shrinking.
It’s a phenomenon Edgar Dworsky, the consumer watchdog behind sites like ConsumerWorld.org and Mouseprint.org, calls “Downsizing”–products that are shrinking in size and not in asking price–and has been tracking since the early 1990s.

Chatting with Business Insider by phone Tuesday, Dworsky let us in on how he’s able to spot what the unpracticed consumer eye otherwise wouldn’t.

“I look through weekly sales ads. If, all of the sudden, I see mayonnaise that’s been 32 ounces is now 30, I go, is that a typo or have they downsized?” he said. Fueled by his hunch, he heads to the store advertising the product, then drives to several others in search of the older, larger product as evidence.

“It’s very rare to find the old and the new (product) on shelves at the same time,” he explained. “That in part is why downsizing is so sneaky. Even when the package is a different size, you almost never get to see them side by side.”

Once he’s sure a product’s been downsized, Dworksy snaps his own photos and shares them on MousePrint. He’ll find as many as a dozen products each year that have shrunk, but says there are always upticks when prices on commodities like gas and raw manufacturing materials shoot up.

“In the past year or so all of the sudden it’s picked up again. Gas for was going for $4 a gallon and commodities were going up, (so) you kind of got the double whammy,” he said.

And since manufacturers would rather shrink their products than deal with consumer backlash over rising prices, they shave off a few ounces, come up with a clever new bottle design, or trim a few sheets of paper towels off the rolls. Peanut butter is a prime example, with brands like Peter Pan and Skippy downsizing from 18 oz. jars to 16.3 oz. amidst rising peanut costs, Dworksy said.

“Manufacturers feel that’s more comforting to consumers than seeing a price rise,” he added. “Of course, it’s kind of a false economy, because if you’re paying the same price and getting less, that’s a backdoor price increase and you’ll still have to go the store more often.”

The only way to really tell you’ve been duped is to check price stickers for unit price or price by weight–an extra step Dworsky knows from experience that busy shoppers aren’t likely to take (“Consumers are price conscious, they’re not net weight conscious”).

And even then, shoppers have to vote down product shrinkage with their feet–and their wallets. That means looking for other brands that haven’t changed their sizes and putting that in your cart instead.

What Dworsky does isn’t easy work, and he hasn’t typically been eager to share his photos with the media in the past. However, he was kind enough to let Business Insider publish a few examples of his findings

The Sad Truth About Today’s World

Illustrated By Steve Cutts

By Martynas Klimas
Art isn’t all fairytale photoshoots and landscape shots – it can also act as catalyst of change. And Steve Cutts thinks that many things in the world should be different. Work shouldn’t be a grinding, soul-crushing rat race for the almighty dollar. Consumerism shouldn’t hold a vice-like grip on our lives. And social media, well, we need to throw-off the shackles we so eagerly put on ourselves. Wouldn’t life be better then?

Steve Cutts is an illustrator and animator from London. Faced with the choice of working at McDonalds or studying Fine Arts, he chose the latter. He worked at Glueisobar as the main storyboard concept artist before making the leap to freelance work. Cutts makes videos and images that criticize modern life – he states that insanity of humanity is an endless pool of inspiration.

Who Are The Elitists? Read And Tell Your Children About Their Children.

An AOC commentary contributed by James Edward (Freelance Media)

Generations that did not study the German-Nazi movement nor Mussolini’s Fascist movement in Italy, may not understand today’s economic downtrends of governments worldwide including the USA. Massive homelessness and judicial corruption are key.

The Elistists are today’s Fascists and history points to Nazism as its neighboring stronghold.

Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini ‘swas an Italian politician and journalist who was the leader of the National Fascist Party. Fascism is a a government’s. economic divide whereby the wealthiest in the society are given superior economic status with legal and political empowerments.

We now have a USA President Trump,who had wealth before the today’s Fascist, Neo Nazi {Skull and Bones Movement). Hillary Clinton, who no doubt would have whipped this corrupt system clean, is also accused of being a Fascist. The Problem with our Fascist gateways are not politicians but fake news, corrupt court agendas and networkings around the world.

Our Emotional Footprint

“I Am Not an Elitist! (Or Am I?) Certain elites are criticized by Trump, and perhaps he has a point”

Saul Levine M.D.

I Am Not an Elitist! (Or Am I?)
Certain elites are criticized by Trump, and perhaps he has a point.

Elitism has become a dirty word, at least among some people who feel that elites are despicable. I hereby declare that “I am not an Elitist” (…or am I?).

As I write this self-serving statement, I’m reminded of the words, “I am not a crook!” spoken by Richard Nixon on national television in 1973. He was protesting that he had nothing to do with the infamous Watergate break-in. (His words were carefully chosen, well-articulated…and blatant lies.)

While the word “crook” refers to someone who breaks the law by stealing, in contrast, ‘elitists’ are doing nothing illegal. Nonetheless, they are seen by President Trump and many of his supporters as nefarious and sworn political enemies.

Trump’s version of elitists are snobs and entitled liberals who profess to have superior intellect and values. To him, they are the educated classes, professionals, scientists and artists, the sophisticated urbanites who populate college towns and large cities. He accuses cultured urban elites of being unaware and uninterested in how “the other half” lives, and of abandoning his base of fervent supporters.

How ‘Elites’ Became One of the Nastiest Epithets in American Politics

By Beverly gage

The notion that distant elites might be conspiring against the people comes straight from the Founding Fathers, whose Declaration of Independence lamented the “long train of abuses and usurpations” inflicted upon ordinary Americans by an arrogant British king. From there on, United States history might be seen as a repeating cycle of anti-elite revolt. The Jacksonians rebelled against the Founders’ aristocratic pretensions. Northern “free labor” went to war against the oligarchical slavocracy. And the Populist revolts of the late 19th century adapted this story to modern capitalism, with farmers and laborers rebelling against robber barons, bankers, time-management experts and college-educated professionals.

The first historians to study those Populists described them as heroic crusaders, champions of the “people” against the “powers.” But by the middle of the 20th century, alarmed by the rise of fascism and homegrown demagogues like Senator Joseph McCarthy, a new generation of scholars took a more anxious view of the anti-elite spirit. In his 1955 book “The Age of Reform,” Richard Hofstadter dismissed the Populists as backward-looking, provincial anti-Semites, the latent fascists of their day. Eight years later, his “Anti-Intellectualism in American Life” documented a dangerous suspicion of “the critical mind” that seemed to course through the national culture. From his perspective, the 1952 election captured everything wrong with American political life, with Dwight Eisenhower’s “philistinism” winning over Adlai Stevenson’s “intellect.”

Is Love of Money Really the Root of All Evils?

Here’s the context of 1 Timothy 6:6–10.

Godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all evils. It is through this love of money that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

Notice that the first part of verse 10 (“For the love of money is a root of all evils”) functions as a ground, or a cause, both backward for verse 9 and forward for the rest of verse 10. Let’s take these one at a time.

How is verse 10a a ground for verse 9?
Verse 9 says that those who desire to be rich fall into “many senseless and harmful desires.” Notice that the desire to be rich does not produce just one desire, but many. Then Paul says the desire to be rich has this effect “because the love of money is the root of all evils.” The “desire to be rich” in verse 9 corresponds to “the love of money” in verse 10a. And the “many desires” of verse 9 corresponds to “all evils” in verse 10.

Paul is tracing the cause of these “many desires” back to the love of money as the root of “all evils.” Why does the desire to be rich not just result in one desire for money but “many desires”? Because the love of money is the root of vastly more than we usually think it is. It is the root of all evils that men do. Paul is tracing the multiplicity of desires that flow from the desire to be rich down deep to a root that accounts for “many” because it accounts for “all.”

“The love of money is the root of vastly more than we usually think it is.” Tweet Share on Facebook
How does the love of money do that? Here is one way: Because “money” is of no value in itself (the paper or the metal). It is desirable only because it is a cultural symbol which can be traded for the “many desires” that we have. But it cannot be traded for God or godliness. Therefore, the love of money in Paul’s mind corresponds to the root longing for the things money can buy minus God. That is why all these many desires “plunge people into ruin and destruction” (verse 9).

Good desires don’t destroy. Only desires for anything minus God destroy. That is what the love of money represents. Therefore, this love is the root of all evils that men commit. Because all evils come from that root desire — the desire for anything minus God. No exceptions.

This is the essence of sin and the root of all sinning — falling short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Or, to put it another way, sin is “exchanging God for the creation” (see Romans 1:23). In other words, at root, sin is preferring anything above God. “All evils” come from this preferring, or this desiring. If something is desired for God’s sake, that desire is not sin. If anything is desired not for God’s sake, that desire is sin. Therefore, all sin, “all evils,” come from this desire, this love — represented in 1 Timothy 6:10 by love for the currency of satisfaction minus God.

How is verse 10a related to the rest of verse 10?
Now we look in the other direction from verse 10a — forward to the rest of the verse. “For the love of money is a root of all evils. It is through this love of money that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.”

Just as in verse 9 the “many senseless and harmful desires plunge people into ruin and destruction,” so here in verse 10 the love of money leads people to “pierce themselves with many pangs.”

“If you love money, you cannot serve God. And if you cannot serve God, then everything you do is evil.” Tweet Share on Facebook
How? “Through this love of money some have wandered away from the faith.” The love of money works its destruction by luring the soul to forsake faith. Faith is the contented trust in Christ that Paul referred to in verse 6: “Godliness with contentment is great gain.” Faith says, “I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content” (Philippians 4:11). Faith has contentment in all circumstances because it has Christ, and Christ makes up for every loss: “I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord” (Philippians 3:8).

All true virtue grows from this root of resting in Christ. Without it, we perform our deeds not as an expression of Christ’s all-sufficiency, but in order to make up for some deficiency we feel, for lack of faith. But that is not true virtue, and it doesn’t honor Christ. Only what is done from faith is truly virtuous. Thus Paul wrote, “For whatever does not proceed from faith is sin” (Romans 14:23).

Which means, “all evils” — to use the words of 1 Timothy 6:10 — rise from the soul that has been lured away from faith. And that, Paul says, is what the love of money does. Through this love of money “some have wandered away from the faith.” But “without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6). Only evil comes from faithlessness — all evil.

You Can’t Love God and Money
So, whether we focus on the way 1 Timothy 6:10a relates backward to verse 9, or forward to the rest of verse 10, the conclusion is the same: It is not nonsense to speak of the love of money being the root of all evils. Changing this in translation to “all kinds of evil” is unnecessary (and when you think about it, “all kinds” is probably just as problematic as “all evils”).

Perhaps the simplest way to illustrate this is to quote Jesus when he said,

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” (Matthew 6:24)

Jesus uses the term “love” to describe the choice: We either love God, or we love money. He attaches the idea of “serving” to this idea of loving: “You cannot serve God and money.” From this I infer that, if you love money, you cannot serve God. And if you cannot serve God, then everything you do is evil. Because that is what evil is: any act not done out of loving service to God. Therefore, the love of money is the root of all evils, not just some evils.

Perhaps you are not persuaded that I have seen a plausible meaning in 1 Timothy 6:10 for the words, “The love of money is the root of all evils.” If not, I hope you have at least seen that someone given more insight than I surely might see such a meaning. Therefore, translators should not preempt that effort by presuming to know such a meaning did not exist
