Growth Through Shrinkage

Staples, the office supply chain, has announced that it will close 30 stores in the US and 45 stores in Europe. It will also reduce its retail square footage in North America by 15%.

The purpose of this move is to “accelerate growth”.

That’s one of the remarkable things about corporations: they foster language in which black is white and up is down.
