Blog: A Price Rise Is Coming - 2014-12-05
There is no reason on earth to further increase the price of these already absurdly over-priced books and CD's other than to try and increase immediate sales.
Miscavige has been promoting for years how all books are printed "in house" in "state of the art printing facilities" and the same with the CD's. And they are all produced with Sea Org lower than third world wage workers. And yet what costs 20 cents to produce (a CD) is sold for $40. And the only real cost of the books is the paper (which they of course buy in bulk) and shipping (in containers) so a book that costs $4 to produce is sold for $40.
