My System Specs

Default

The problem I have with retailers is that within the hour of the announced shortages, all retailers doubled prices on stock they already had claiming it was due to shortages that were not even physically realized yet. THEN, Linus came on here chiming how it was fair and reasonable practice since they had to pad their future profits against the lost profits. Considering they have lost hardly a cent during this manufactured crisis and most likely they turned more profit, it is hypocritical of ANY retailer to claim they had to and that they are not making the same or more profit.

That is my problem with it.
