How do leftists “cure” inflation? Why, with price ceilings, of course.
Argentina announced a two-month price freeze on supermarket products Monday in an effort to break spiraling inflation.
The price freeze applies to every product in all of the nation’s largest supermarkets — a group including Walmart, Carrefour, Coto, Jumbo, Disco and other large chains. The companies’ trade group, representing 70 percent of the Argentine market, reached the accord with Commerce Secretary Guillermo Moreno, the government’s news agency Telam reported.
The commerce ministry wants consumers to keep receipts and complain to a hotline about any price hikes they see before April 1.
Coming up next: Shortages. Shortages, of course, lead to a black market. Black markets are underground markets without contract support from the state so they result in organized crime and violence. Oh, and inflation continues unabated.
