Watch Out for "Big Egg"
REEDSVILLE, WISC. — Humpty Dumpty Eggs President Paul Brandt assured himself this week the 52-year-old company is not going out of business despite empty coolers and lack of inventory.
Brandt said higher egg prices haven't deterred buyers from getting eggs to hard-boil, color and eat in the tradition of Easter. "Even with higher prices, we're noticed demand is still high," Brandt said.
Comment: Isn't it possible that "Big Egg" is "price gouging" us this week for eggs? And won't "Big Egg" have "windfall profits" this week from the high egg sales and high egg prices? When market forces caused high oil prices after the hurricanes in 2005, there were Congressional investigations of Big Oil for "price gouging" and "windfall profits," isn't it time to give "Big Egg" the same scrutiny?
Hoppy Easter and Happy Holi!!
