The cost of theft
On this episode of The Cost of Everything we take a closer look at the economic toll companies are taking when it comes to theft. This is a phenomenon that is making big merchant retailers close their doors because of the massive amounts of retail theft in cities like San Francisco and New York. But, what about in other parts of the world? Is retail robbery affecting companies in Africa? Host Christy Ai spoke to Retail Boss Jeanel Alvarado about the devastating consequences of retail theft that goes unpunished. Later in the show, Clinton Nzala from Kenya explains how theft is not as common in his country, and the measures retail businesses take to avoid it.
