pricing omission?

Here is something to think about -------

Chris Campbell's article "Price It Right!", in the March/April issue of
Pottery Making Illustrated appears to me as having one important
omission - profit - an amount to be invested or plowed back into the
business. Even self employed potters need to consider that item. A
formula that I remember hearing of years ago consisted of 1/3 materials &
overhead, 1/3 labor, 1/3 profit.
