Zimbabwe Ben causes shrinkage

We noted in Zimbabwe Ben comes to Trader Joe's that manufacturers and retailers are trying to hide inflation by sneakily shrinking packages rather than raising prices.

Now CNN Money reports that package shrinkage is happening all over the place.

Recently, some environmentalist commenters have cheered Zimbabwe Ben for his effect on gas prices. But causing package shrinkage is bad for the environment, as it produces more packaging waste per unit of useful product. Zimbabwe Ben is no environmental hero.
