The answer is simple, 1!! That’s right ladies and gentlemen, you too can have the ultimate unnecessary accessory for the low-low of $185!! Has Prada and more importantly, those who are lining up to buy this sterling silver paper clip themed money clip, lost their minds? This resonates negatively with me for a litany of reasons. Do we realize how many people are literally starving in our wealthiest cities across America? Do we care about the “working poor” who don’t live paycheck to paycheck, but rather paycheck to a payday loan to paycheck? The growing homelessness that is plaguing our country, and lastly the underfunding of our public school systems.
Prada is not alone in the world of over priced and silly products:
These are just a few of the of worst products that I have seen recently. I’m not blaming Prada for all of our societal problems, but this reeks of the “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche” (“let them eat cake” for the none french speaking), that was a precursor and a battle cry of the French Revolution. We are at a critical junction in our society – Materialism vs Reality. I will be watching the sales on this item, and more importantly, who will flaunt the fact that they bought 1 paperclip for what they could’ve 13k paperclips.
