GM Does Not Expect Dealer Price Gouging on Early Chevy Volts
Of the many fascinating topics surrounding the Chevy Volt, probably none evokes as much passion as the car’s price. The car is likely to MSRP anywhere from low to high 30s but buyers will be eligible for a $7500 tax credit, bringing the effective price likely below $30,000. There are always concerns, however, about possible dealer price gouging. When highly desirable new technology products are available in limited supply and at limited locations, economic forces often dictate price escalations. It the simple supply and demand equation. GM has said they will roll the Volt out gradually in waves, and reports suggest as ... market research, surveys and trends
The Economy: Whose Fault is It?
Throughout American history it has always been easy to blame our presidents for everything that could possibly go wrong in America and for that matter around the world. The reason we blame our presidents is because we believe one man has total control of the nation. We somehow think our presidents have the ability to look into the future and make new laws that will prevent new catastrophes from ever occurring. We forget unless the president has total control of everything our Congress does, he cannot make any new laws. The one area the President has the most power in is conducting foreign policy and even here when it comes to ... market research, surveys and trends

(in tests, these have ranged form 5GB/month to 40GB/month) and ludicrous pricing schemes, has taken to the 'Net to defend its sullied honor. But it's hard to defend a scheme with fees so high they might well meet the legal definition of "obscene." First, the response: Time Warner Cable COO Landel Hobbs wrote earlier this week of the need for people to pay for the bandwidth they consume. "When you go to lunch with a friend, do you split the bill in half if he gets the steak and you have a salad?" he asked. Fair enough. Bandwidth costs (a little bit of) money, and there's certainly no reason for ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Feds: No collusion or price gouging / Blame it on Katrina ...
Gas prices soared across the country after Hurricane Katrina in late summer, but federal investigators reported Monday they could find no evidence that oil companies manipulated prices or colluded to take advantage of the situation to increase profits. The Federal Trade Commission also determined in a longer-range finding that during the past 20 years refiners didn't seek to manipulate prices by cutting the number of operating refineries or limiting increases in capacity. The report, which supports the long-held position of the oil industry that higher gas prices are purely a function of supply and demand in an increasingly ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Fiddling With the Free Market
In the wake of Hurricane Katrina a year ago, we heard many complaints of “price gouging”--by oil companies in their gasoline pricing, by greedy innkeepers in cities like Memphis--all taking advantage of temporary shortages and human desperation to make a quick buck. Price gouging by big oil was very much on the mind of the U.S. House of Representatives this May when it passed by an overwhelming margin H.R. 5253: The Federal Energy Price Protection Act of 2006. This law ...
