Guest Post: A Louisiana Grocery Store Is Forced To Raise Milk Prices By State Regulators
You might have to read this post twice to make sure your eyes didn’t deceive you. This article is actually completely different from our recent pieces on stealth inflation, but is even more infuriating. In this case, a grocery store called Fresh Markets decided to sell milk at a bargain basement price as part of a promotion, yet the state has deemed the price “too low.” As a result, the chain is being forced to raise the price. Yep, at a time when millions are struggling every day to make ends meet, this is what the state of Louisiana has decided it a priority that the cost of milk is higher for consumers in the state. This is exactly what happens when bureaucrats exert to much influence in our daily lives. No one can seem to put a banker in jail, but sell milk too cheap and regulators are all over you.
