Rising Commodity Prices: A Lesson in Managerial Economics

I just read an article in BusinessWeek that is very applicable to what I am learning at the Mason School of Business.

Though luxury consumers have resumed their spending habits, there is a demand side component that is still causing the price of inputs like leather to go up. A worthy read for those interested in managerial economics.
