Comment: Government price controls

(See in situ)

Government price controls

Government price controls result in shortages, because the economics of providing the products or services is not there. No business will continue to source products and put those products on their shelves in order to lose money. If anything, I expect many of these companies to purchase now and keep the items in storage until they can raise prices again.
