Welcome to Cognitive Dissonance Today.
Cognitive Dissonance Today: Rockin’ its peers and puttin’ suckers in fear since 2002 AD.
And now, Cognitive Dissonance Today:
This is from Reuters: “The Rolling Stones will hold their first-ever concert in China in April. Tickets range from $38-$375.”
I’m not sure where to even begin with this story. Which element is more dissonant?
- The Rolling Stones are still alive, much less playing concerts.
- The Rolling Stones are playing in China. Or,
- People in a country where the per capita income is roughly $5000 are going to shell out $375 to see these old farts play “Satisfaction”.
You can’t make this stuff up.
This has been Cognitive Dissonance Today.
