Exploiting the ‘dummy’ market

The ‘dummy market’ is about exploiting people who don’t know, don’t think and don’t explore options – for whatever reasons. They find life is too complicated, too short, and everything is too much effort. They want it now and they don’t want to think too much about it. They’re unableRead More
