Over at My money blog, a poster speaks of the joys of buying glasses online. Several comments reflect the feeling of, “wow, what a great idea!” The story, as told on the blog, is that a Lenscrafters employee buys the very equipment they use at the store and starts making $28 glasses from home. It seems to me that the internet is leveling the free-market playing field in ways that weren’t even imaginable 15 years ago. Might it be that the internet is bringing back true capitalism, starting with eyeglasses?
Is the internet creating a level playing field?
