jaylectricity: In the latest quarter, for instance, Netflix added just 420,000 Internet video and DVD-by-mail subscribers in the U.S. That compared with an increase of 1.8 million U.S. subscribers at the same time last year, a period that was completed before the company boosted its prices.

I hate this kind of thinking in business. There is a finite number of possible subscribers. To judge the health of your business by how many new subscribers you have sets you up for inevitable failure.

Well, maybe if women stopped having abortions, there'd be more future subscribers, which means more money, which means Netflix can hire more people.

See? Republican social conservatism creates jobs. QED.
