Could I enjoy a $400 cigar? Sure. If you were buying. Lighting this cigar would need to be for a very special occasion. 4,000 of these Cohibe Bhike cigars have been produced and will be sold forty to a box (that's $16,000 a box for those doing the math). Certain to have slow burning quality, it could provide great pleasure as a few hundred dollars go up in smoke.
Implications - The economic recession is slowly recovering, and consumers are now looking to spend their cash on a variety of products. Businesses can benefit from this by offering commodities that exude a certain amount of luxury and offer a sense of prestige to buyers. Companies will see great returns by providing this option to customers.
