  2. In a true free-market economy, greedflation is kept in check by competition. There is always someone who will sell their product for cheaper, and will force others to come down close to that level to remain competitive. We have not been a true free-market economy for many years. Our government, especially when run by democrats, has meddled in business too much, and do not allow for true capitalism. Remember what they did in 2020. They shut down your mom and pop stores and allowed the big box stores to stay open. They eliminated competition, which lead to these larger corporations being able to gain more of a hold over the market. The government's job is to make sure that companies don't hold a monopoly over business. But they have their fingers in too many areas of our economy. As with many other things, they have overstepped their boundaries in the market. I will 100% agree that this is not solely on the Biden administration, as the federal government has been doing this to us for a century.

  7. What is Biden's solution? Give away money to people who take out irresponsible loans? Invest hundreds of Billions into Green Energy? Send hundreds of billions to Ukraine and Israel to destroy things? All of these things, plus pandemic policies that he supported led to this inflation.

  9. Either an older coach that is trying to up his retirement will take it or a young coach that believes they can do what no one else has been able to do will take it. In any case, it takes A LOT, to fix a program and more often than not is has little to do with the coaches.

  14. Corporations, especially in the food industry, have gradually become monopolies and can fix pricing unfettered. I believe that the government should play a part in attacking that, as food inflation is regressive more to those with less income. https://eatamericano.com/blogs/thoughts-from-the-peanut-gallery/the-food-industry-a-game-of-monopoly

  17. Companies/Corporations have a standard that they set for themselves where they at minimum do not change the money made in profits each year. That is a problem with the stock market, you want higher income each year that you are invested in these companies each year so it causes 2 things. 1) More sales to increase profit or 2) Increased prices to cover the lack of or stalemate of sales There is such thing as "greedflation" but it is enabled by the government. 95% of Americans (this is a made up number) would not take a pay cut to increase the value of their company. Why would you expect the company to take a pay cut to assist Brandon and his inflation?

  18. You are half right, government involvement in business by giving ridiculous tax breaks and subsidizing industries is just as bad as trying to set wages. It is not the business of the government, and never has been.

  20. Raising the minimum wage is only ever going to raise the costs of the goods being sold, that’s it. Quit trying to raise minimum wage. Kids and very young adults are meant to work at jobs that pay minimum wage not people like you and I. Minimum wage paying jobs are meant to be stepping stone positions. Please quit acting like everyone works minimum wage jobs and the man is holding everyone down. Corporations are meant to make money and when you force them to pay their minimum wage employees a higher minimum wage you and I (AND THE MINIMUM WAGE EARNERS) are going to pay more for the products, period. Why Democrats can’t see it as an endless cycle they can’t control is beyond me.

  21. Let me get this straight.... so the wealthy gets tax breaks which is is meant to stimulate the economy, you know, trickle down to us. They raise minimum wage and even though the tax breaks were out into to place for that, they raise prices and have the PEOPLE take on that cost which in turn let's them keep their money in their pocket, the people then points fingers at the working man/woman and Americans defend this system? The wealthy truly has you guys brainwashed. This is just as bad as our tipping system

  23. It left out car insurance and property damage insurance. Insurance Costs Are Pushing Up Overall Inflation - The New York Times (nytimes.com) . Barry wants to blame inflation all on greed, but housing has been driven up by Democrat tax collectors in many cities. Biden met with the Auto Workers Union to support them for higher wages. Bread is higher because of Biden's support of the Ukraine which once produced much of the grains for Europe. Chicken and Eggs - We keep hearing bird flu that could spread to humans. Public transportation and Air travel are both up because of higher oil prices. With the higher costs of goods and services profits may also rise with inflation, and even if the companies reduced the cost of their products 1 cent for each product they sell, the consumer may not see even one penny decrease in the cost of the goods, because the reduction would be less than the price of 1 cent. Barry's article does not show how much these companies are making, but that their profits are up. If it's the same as inflation, then there is no greedflation. They are only maintaining their profit margin to stay in business.
