"Economies of Scale...Look it up."
Thank you. That is part of the problem here. Most Americans are illiterate when it comes to economics, even the basics.
This ignorance adds fuel to fire for politicians who want to blame Bob the Baker for making a living by taking advantage of George.
You are far to kind in describing our fellow Americans. In reality they are blind, freakin' stoopid when it comes to the workings of an economy as well as the most basic of economic realities. This is why the politicians can so easily have their way.
