Price Gouging

Pedro: Why are you changing the prices on all of those items in the store?

Elisa: Haven’t you heard? There’s a Hurricane coming. People will be Stocking up on Basic necessities.

Pedro: I know that, but that still doesn’t explain why you’ve decided To jack up prices.

Elisa: There’s nothing wrong with taking advantage of a Spike in Demand during emergency situations. We’re in business to make money.

Pedro: That’s Price gouging and you know it. There are laws against that. And plus, we shouldn’t be Exploiting people’s fear.

Elisa: I’m not responsible for that hurricane and I didn’t tell people To hoard. I’m not Hiking prices so high that people can’t afford it. I’m just increasing them To discourage hoarding, that’s all.

Pedro: I don’t know. It still doesn’t feel right. It feels like we’re Profiteering.

Elisa: No, we’re not. We’re making a Sound business decision. Hey, where are you going with those?

Pedro: I’m putting some of these items in the back To reserve for people who can’t afford your new prices, the poorest and the most Vulnerable in our community.

Elisa: You’re not suggesting we Give those items away!

Pedro: You’ll thank me later for helping you To assuage your Guilty conscience.

Elisa: Hmph!
