A Word on Prices


 A Word on Prices:

 

It is unwise to pay too much.   However, it is far worse to pay too little.   When you pay too much, you lose a little money and that is all.

When you pay too little, you will sometimes lose everything! Unfortunately, this  includes what you could have achieved with the higher priced product.  Economist call that lost opportunity.

The common law in "Buisness Balance" prohibits paying a little and getting a lot.  It simply does not happen in reality.    When you deal with the lowest bidder you need to have enough to pay for the lost business opportunity or the hidden risks! (think NASA after the Shuttle disasters)

If you had considered the hidden costs of using the lowest bidders, you would have had the money for the better product!    There is hardly anything in the world that someone else can not make a little worse by making it cheaper.

 In the words of a wise old man, " I have never been been disappointed in the most expensive tools, however I have ALWAYS been disappointed in the cheapest!"
