Taking advantage and gouging during a tragedy or catastrophe is pure greed, no matter how anyone can try justifying raising prices beyond normal conditions.

Running a successful business under normal economic conditions will support raises to employees who help make that company successful.

There's a new story today that Russia is cutting the price of its oil to find buyers. I love watching supply and demand do its thing. (This will actually help reduce the cost of gasoline a little, but so little you may not notice)

When a company invests in improvements and raising prices, that's a little different than raising rates, and doing no upkeep or improvements. THen take the extra profits to the bank, and clients get nothing extra for the extra fee.

The latter reminds me of the word Greed...


So you sell widgets and you have a big stockpile that sell for let's say $100 and now the market supports selling that same widget for $150 you are going to keep selling at $100???????


Monkey44 is just expressing his disdain for capitalism, just as most folks who are not motivated and self reliant support socialism.
It’s ok. If everyone was was motivated and self reliant and capitalist, there would be less cheese to go around for the motivated people to eat!

Lower prices in Kansas. Somebody tell Ron White, he could have a field day with that as a follow up to a previous skit.

OP - Owning an RV gives you options boondocks, state parks, and private parks. Always stay away from holidays and crowds, avoid overpriced CG. Been RVing for 20+ years learned quickly to avoid Private CGs.


X2, I know of some great places because people are too afraid of bears. The bears never charged very much LOL.

Look to Venezuela for your proposed solution. The govt mandated that bakeries follow state pricing when their economy blew up (ie: a tragedy or catastrophe).

Result: Most bakeries simply shut down because they couldn't even pay for supplies at the govt mandated prices.

Of course, most sane bakery owners started operating on the black market rather than go bankrupt.

Nope, none of it's free, but the capitalists pay for both kinds. The stuff they eat and the stuff that gets handed out to those who don't buy their own, lol.

I'm 70. But have had the Federal Senior Pass since I was 62. On our trip to Texas in March,we paid anywhere from $7.50 to $19 for water and electric sites at federal campgrounds. We paid between $35 and $45 at state parks. $35 for W&E and the $45 was for FHU. 1 night at a private campground with FHU was $45. Diesel for the trip was $1700.00.
