ll of which circles me back to the title of today's vlog: Speedo and A.H.I.P.
As most of us suspect, Speedo's decision to add a rubber-like flotation material to the LSR suit, which soon lead to competitors, from B70 to Jaked, adding even more rubber-like flotation materials to their
racing suits, appears to have been the final straw that forced FINA's hand.
This overreaching on Speedo's part, in my opinion, was what killed the golden goose. If they had stuck with pure textiles, and world records had continued to fall on some reasonable schedule--as opposed to an explosion of them--I suspect that FINA would have never had to ban tech suits.
Speedo would still be selling $400 FastPros and the like.
I, for one, will never spend more than $25 on a swimming suit again in my life.
My prediction: America's Health Insurance Plans
), the lobby "representing nearly 1300 member companies providing health insurance coverage to more than 200 million Americans," should have learned from Speedo's mistake.
Go ahead and raise rates by 10-39 percent per year till virtually all people in my boat are uninsured, leaving only the best actuarial "risks" with private insurance.
At some point, this is going to come back to bite you.
I only hope I live to see the day.
