I don't think they have an agenda. All international rates doubled. Our post office has been teetering on bankruptcy for years, so they've been implementing price increases pretty frequently. This last price increase was definitely brutal and will have a real effect on small businesses that ship internationally like KnittingHelp.com.

Our postal service has had a hard time coping with the increasingly digital world we live in. Rather than innovate and become more efficient, they just keep increasing the prices. It's too bad.
