And who in their right mind buys a shake everyday? Burger King's and McDonald's shakes are decent enough if
I needed to indulge. 7? 8? 9? 10 bucks a burger plus frys? Screw that. I will buy a steak for a few bucks more. All these places will crash and burn in less than 4 years.
Anytime the govt allows major mergers or deregulation the consumer eventually suffers, Examples are the airlines. Lowest fuel costs in 7 years, the airlines biggest expense, yet ticket prices continue to rise. But the worst may be the cable companies. You are getting screwed every month by higher prices. The cost of cable or internet connection is more than triple, yes triple the rate of inflation. Corporate America has bought and sold congressmen and senators allowing for these price gouges. The list goes on. To be continued.
