Anorexia, boycotts and social awareness

Coach Inc. specializes in high-end apparel and accessories, and is one of the most popular and easily recognized brands in the world. Having a market value of about  $15-billion and 2014 world-wide sales of slightly less than $5-billion, Coach is also recognized by Forbes as being VERY employee-friendly.  In every respect Coach seems to be a model company.

But Calgary-born entrepreneur and Canadian chess patron Sid Belzberg has a BEEF with Coach: he thinks its models are TOO SKINNY!  I agree with Sid!

What do you think?  Does Sid have a point?

LINK But ofcourse Coach is not the most guilty.  In a trade where being thin is glorified, there are more and more stories–some even tragic–of models being forced to be so. Perhaps the reader is not aware that France , earlier this month, introduced legislation to ban super-skinny models and is willing to impose large fines and even prison sentences on those modelling agencies and fashion houses that promote this awful practice.  Read the link above for more information.
