We've all entered the capitalist retaliation phase though, which we all knew was imminent? Let's call it "the great gouging." Basically every large corporation is doing what Martin Skrelli did with out of patent drugs with the goods they have secured the rights to distribute, the worst offenders of course being the oil, gas, and electric companies. Except unlike Skrelli they don't have to waste time manipulating regulations to gauge their customers. They only have to collude to raise prices.
