It’s the concept of value-adding, where an object or service’s price point includes something extra. It’s understandable, because so much of what […]
On this day in 1913, a Swedish engineer named Gideon Sundback, of Hoboken, NJ, patented a “separable fastener,” which we know today as the All-Purpose Zipper.
