“High seas piracy affects us all,” noted Staples. He elaborated, “From the hostages who get raped, beaten and murdered, to the shipping lines who get blackmailed, to the anxious families of crews throughout the world to consumers paying higher prices at Wal-Mart.”Higher shipping rates. Higher energy rates. Higher insurance rates. It is all reflected in the price of goods on the shelf.
