On Security Analysis and Amazon


I was considering if it is was worth getting the book “Security Analysis” from Amazon. Its listed price is much cheaper than if you get it from a Singapore local bookstore, even after postage.

With the increase of the Singapore dollar versus the US dollar, the prices of books should have come down. But it didn’t. When the Singapore dollar weakened against the US dollar the bookstores took the opportunity to increase prices, but with the reverse, it didn’t happen. So the online bookstores are looking to be a better bet to get a good deal.

Being a cheapskate, I googled for ways to ship via Amazon to Singapore and found this website, Parka Blogs which provides good information on buying stuff from US. I had done it before and didn’t like the Singpost because of rather poor service from them. So looking for alternative ways to get it, even if it is direct from Amazon.

I have bought stuff from US before, books, dvds and even a digital camera. Think the world is becoming ever more interconnected as more people explore direct shopping and shipping the item straight to their homes.
