Stamps, Abigail Adams and the Economics of the Postal Service
The U.S. Postal Service recently announced a proposal to hike up the cost of stamp 2 cents to 46 cents.
The how and why of the price increase is a slice of the downturn that points to issues in the public, private sectors. And the fact that I hand wrote a letter the other day for the first time in years. Then, when done, I kept looking for the “send” button. Eeek!
But if we stop mailing letters, does that mean we must stop dreaming of being immortalized in stamp form?
