So then, are you willing to pay 620 USD for 2014 bars? Thats what we are looking at right now if the trend keeps up.

Maybe, but he's saying that labor costs are a small fraction of the cost of a bar. So even if that fraction goes up 15% like you say, it only adds, what, 3 - 5% to the total cost. It can't account for the price increases we are seeing.

If you are happy with last years model, there are some bargains to be sourced.
Are kite companies here to make money? Of course, that is their primary goal and business model.
Kite companies will keep prices high while trying to balance the supply chain. No different than any other market.
