The Long Black Friday Shopping Day Has Dawned


Black Friday falls on Nov. 23 this year, but retailers already have begun to promote the huge discounts they plan to offer in its name. Some deals already are available to shoppers.

Black Friday sales are no longer limited to brick-and-mortar stores. For example, Amazon kicked off more than 50 days of “Black Friday Deals” last week.

Last week marked the 224th anniversary of the U.S. patent system, an institution designed to promote progress in the fledgling nation. Despite its value for more than two centuries, that system is under attack.
