'Shrinkflation' process lacking in vision

We all love the story of the man who had this great idea to save a matchbox manufacturer a fortune - an idea which he would only divulge if he was given an absolute guarantee that he would receive a large sum of money if indeed his idea caused the manufacturer's profits to rise.
The idea was to use one side of the box only, to strike a match.
Traditionally, the sandpaper-like substance on which the match would be struck, was on two sides of the box, a practice which our man realised was just a waste of good sandpaper.
