Remembering Whitney (hardcover book)

Canada: $16.49 (Indigo)
U.S.: $15.39 (Amazon.com)
Price gap: 7.1%
Reason: economics

The low Canadian dollar used to be the main culprit in higher book prices, but lately the difference is more likely due to the influence of Canadian copyright rules, which grant Canadian distributors exclusivity — and allow them to add up to 10 per cent to the price of U.S. books.

* Bing: Will the Canadian dollar rise or fall?
