Measure for measure?

11 September 2007

There is news today that Britain won’t be changing from imperial to metric measures after all.

While this will delight those who were brought up with pounds, ounces and gallons (and disappoint those that have been brought up with the reverse), surely it is easier for business if every country is operating with the same standard measures, especially with the advance of globalisation.

Has your buying been affected by inaccurate or confusing measurements?
