Only a handfull of people would lower their prices.....It has nothing to do with GREED.....you work for money and would take more if offered, then you are "greedy" also...Why is it just the business owner who is greedy? If you are not greedy, then cut your own pay by 25 % tomorrow and have it sent to the needy......

If there were a Fair Tax, everyone would be waiting around for everyone else to lower their prices first and no one would ever do it...No one would cut their own salary, so businesses would not cut their prices..

Besides: The Gov-ment always wants more and the locals would raise their taxes to get any real savings if there were any..

Won't work..

Right. No one would understand that they could increase market share by lowering their prices and that they could increase their profits by increasing their market share.

You don't own a business, obviously. Or if you do, you just magically operate in a bubble with no competition! Must be nice...

Any business that doesn't lower the prices will go out of business.
