Wit & Wisdom Wednesday - AA Milne on More for Less

It is Wit & Wisdom Wednesday at Elarbee Media, and this week we are quoting A.A. Milne of “Winnie the Pooh” fame. Milne is referring to the founder of Britain’s The Daily Mail, Lord Northcliffe, and his business acumen in producing what the public wanted; more and for less money.
