On July 15, small and independent publishers will be hit with a major postage rate increase that threatens to push many of them out of print. Yet just days before the new rates are supposed to take effect, most publishers still don't know how much they're supposed to pay — leaving them unable to prepare for the severe financial burden the hike is likely to inflict.

Comment: Why are larger companies getting a better deal from the U.S. Postal Service? Is the argument one of economy-of-scale? It is really just more of the same monopolising at the top.
