Louis Vuitton Adjusts Business Model to Focus on the Oligarch Market

You know you have entered Neo-Fedualism when high-end luxury retailers are struggling because there are no longer enough regular wealthy buyers anymore. As regular readers of this blog understand, this is due to the fact that central bankers and governments around the world have been redistributing and consolidating all global wealth to the top 0.01% oligarch crony class. The corporate solution to this problem courtesy of Business Week is:

Louis Vuitton is raising its focus somewhat from the really affluent to the really, really affluent. The Paris-based conglomerate of fabulous and fussy things is launching a new line of very high-end leather handbags and accessories to complement its existing products, according to Women’s Wear Daily.

The strategy raises the question: just how much more opulent can LVMH get? The company already sells $88,000 watches, $4,000 handbags, and $1,000scarves. But if you are asking that question, the new LVMH line isn’t for you. There’s really no ceiling in the high-end retail game (consider astrakhan, a fleece harvested from fetal lambs).

At least in Medieval times the knights and noblemen would ride into battle, and as Nassim Taleb likes to say, had “skin in the game.” The rulers in modern feudalism merely print electronic money and hand it to themselves to purchase fetal lamb wool.

QE100 will focus its efforts on the purchase of Birkin Handbags and million dollar Hublots from oligarchs.

  2. Wall St. and the ‘Triple-Fucking’ of US Workers, Taxpayers
    ‘All across America,’ reports Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi, ‘Wall Street is grabbing money meant for public workers

    In his latest feature-length piece for Rolling Stone magazine, the eloquently foul-mouthed financial reporter Matt Taibbi takes a close look at what he terms the “improbable triple-fucking of ordinary people” by exploring how Wall Street financiers and hedge fund barons have managed to convince those who control state workers’ pensions to hand over hundreds of millions of dollars in public funds to hedge fund billionaires while simultaneously demanding huge cuts to the earned benefits of current and retired public employees.

  3. This is horrendous… To kill a living creature is so wrong and to kill an animal fetus? Wtf ………………. This is beyond every imaginable level of cruelty.

  4. I love my handbag. It is a dark green canvas Jansport backpack that I bought 15 years ago for $30. It is indestructible and versatile.
    You couldn’t pay me to carry a LV bag let alone one made from fetal lamb’s wool. Pure evil
