Re: the REAL reason for remainder marks?



The Supreme Court decision underlying the increase in remaindered books is
the Thor Power Tool decision that eliminated a companies gradually marking
down the evaluation of unsold merchandise over time.  That is, it no
longer became worthwhile for a manufacturer to hold on to unsold
merchandise.  Attempts to overturn the decision have not been successful.
