I see the problem. Your brain cell is overheating and you're are concluding that a singular pricing strategy is equivalent to a comprehensive business model. Sorry you lose.

Your argument is so larded with weasel words that it is unintelligible gibberish. Please define "modest" in your corner of the Universe. 

And you obviously fail to realize that 'whatever the market will bear' can also refer to moderate and low pricing as well as high. In market clearing, prices move towards an equilibrium where demand is equal to production. If supply or demand for the goods start to vary, prices will rise and fall to reflect the dynamics of the market. If supply is too high and demand at zero, then the market will clear by reducing the price to zero (throw or give it away). So of course production of a good has to be able to be adjusted to match what the market is setting as a clearing price. 

If people's checking account are being drained every month, then the logical response is to stop buying or switch products. If you can't afford filet, then switch to hamburger. If you can't afford hamburger, mix in some hamburger helper. As suppliers start to see their revenues start to shrink, the market will lower prices.

Capitalism and a free market at work.

Make no mistake of it; slime bags like this guy are progressive liberals.  America would be so much better if liberalism was driven out of this country.  Perhaps when Donald Trump becomes President he will introduce version 2 of Obama’s “Cash for clunkers” only this time he will direct it at progressive liberals.  I hope so as we need to drive these evil people off our streets just like Obama drove those evil gas guzzlers off the streets.


Ya Jammer, good find.   bounce Rolling Eyes Sleep    I see you haven't lost your ability to breathe fire and brimstone.  That's nice to see.  I'm curious though, why do you put so much faith in liberal bloggers?  I don't even have any faith in them.  The only site I see purporting this story is a liberal blog called "The Progressive Midwesterner".  I think you're going to need to find something a bit more substantive, your shiit seems pretty weak.

You are the most incredibly stupid person I have ever witnessed.   My comment  
 Spoken like a typical progressive socialist who doesn’t have a clue on how to run a business  
had zero to do with how the lady runs her business.  My words clearly referred to the jackass (that would be YOU) making the stupid statement as being clueless.  This latest comment just confirms that a pile of dogshit has a higher IQ than you do.

Now get lost and in the future do not take any of my comments to infer that I have any intention of getting in a dialogue with you.  You are stupid, creepy, selfish, greedy, pure evil and a lying liberal who will say anything that he thinks will advance his evil agenda.  And if that isn’t enough, I don’t like you.

I am sure there is somebody on the face of the earth that will waste their time conversing with you.  But forgive me I have minimum standards and you fall way short you slimy liberal.

Re: If Capitalism had a Hall of Fame....

I long for the day when all good Americans will see the evil that resides on our very own streets.  Progressive liberalism is pure evil and spreads hatred for the values and principles that made America great.

What the rodent Jackoff Jones tried to do in this thread is what has been going on in this country for over a century.  Jackoff Jones tried to get on his soapbox and shine a light on the evil Martin Shkreli in an attempt to paint his evil ways as that of conservatives.  He pretended to take the high ground and show the world how capitalism allows greedy conservatives to take advantage of the down trodden.  However, there was just one problem; it was all a BIG LIE.  Martin Shkreli is a progressive liberal.

If anyone doubts that this misrepresentation, deception, distortion and outright lying by progressive liberals has been going on for over a century, I urge you to do some research.  I suggest one (but there are many) good starting points is William Randolph Hearst.

William Randolph Hearst was one of the richest men in the country and he was a flaming liberal democrat.  Not only did he support the democrats but he was an activist liberal winning several elections as a democrat and had dreams of being mayor of NYC and the President of the United States.  

http://historyofjournalism.onmason.com/2009/09/16/46/

http://www.history.com/topics/william-randolph-hearst

It should not be a big surprise that Hearst used his newspaper empire to support the progressive liberal agenda of the democrat party.   Also not a big surprise, that evil ideology is still the passion of most newspapers in this country today.

The hypocrite Hearst attacked all of his political opponents for being greedy and uncaring about the needy in this country.  However, in typical progressive liberal fashion his words never matched his actions.  In fact as we all know, progressive liberals say one thing and do exactly the opposite.

So what were some of the actions of Hearst?  Well I will just let you read about one of the notorious things that he did which led to the famous Newsboy Strike.  Oh yeah, as you read the article below you might be interested to know that his partner in crime Joseph Pulitzer was also a flaming progressive liberal.

http://newsboysstrike1899.weebly.com/background-story.html

But how have most of the students in this country remembered the strikes of that era thanks to our progressive liberal educational system?  Well I think most people will tell you that the kind and generous progressive liberals led a crusade of strikes across America that broke the backs of the greedy capitalist conservatives.  Typical LIBERAL LIES continue to be spread in this country because we have let the evil progressive socialists in this country control the narrative.

So whether it is the evil Marin Shkreli and many of these hedge fund managers who are almost all LIBERALS or the newspaper moguls Hearst and Pulitzer, the stories are very similar.  Little has changed in the last century except there are many more useful idiots like Jackoff Jones standing on his soapbox demeaning good honest Americans and protecting the progressive liberal socialists who would destroy capitalism in this country to enhance their personal wealth.

I don’t know what is more disgusting the evil elitists like Hearst and Shkreli who are leading the progressive socialists or the stupid lowlife useful idiots like Jackoff Jones who support them and their evil agenda.  Regardless, they are PURE EVIL and their evil agenda must be eradicated from America.  Take a stand against evil and their rodents like Jackoff Jones who spread the progressive socialist agenda.

Keep shining your light on the cockroaches Jammer...you are directly over the target. I too find it extremely frustrating how the left controls the message through the liberal media. They have destroyed this country with their ideals then as soon as it starts collapsing they scream see...see what capitalism does! They are the spawn of Satan himself and people need to open their eyes.

Really? Using markup to determine profits is crazycakes accounting. You should be using gross margin when calculating profits because markup overstates the profitability of the transaction. Markup percentage is the difference between the actual cost and the selling price, while gross margin percentage is the difference between the selling price and the profit. By using gross margin pricing you can improve your bottom line by 3%. 

There are other factors that come into play when setting a selling price than just cost. The challenge is to find a price that will optimize your profits while remaining competitive. Sheesh!

Thx so much Gomerr.  Big belly Ho-Ho-Ho's like that really keep the Christmas spirit alive.  I suppose you like to fight over whether the glass is half empty or half full as well.  You must be a real hoot at a party.  Anywho, if you don't like the way she does things you'll have to take it up with her.  Good luck, she's on vaca in California.

It should not be a big surprise that Hearst used his newspaper empire to support the progressive liberal agenda of the democrat party.   Also not a big surprise, that evil ideology is still the passion of most newspapers in this country today.

The hypocrite Hearst attacked all of his political opponents for being greedy and uncaring about the needy in this country.  However, in typical progressive liberal fashion his words never matched his actions.  In fact as we all know, progressive liberals say one thing and do exactly the opposite.

So what were some of the actions of Hearst?  Well I will just let you read about one of the notorious things that he did which led to the famous Newsboy Strike.  Oh yeah, as you read the article below you might be interested to know that his partner in crime Joseph Pulitzer was also a flaming progressive liberal.

But how have most of the students in this country remembered the strikes of that era thanks to our progressive liberal educational system?  Well I think most people will tell you that the kind and generous progressive liberals led a crusade of strikes across America that broke the backs of the greedy capitalist conservatives.  Typical LIBERAL LIES continue to be spread in this country because we have let the evil progressive socialists in this country control the narrative.

So whether it is the evil Marin Shkreli and many of these hedge fund managers who are almost all LIBERALS or the newspaper moguls Hearst and Pulitzer, the stories are very similar.  Little has changed in the last century except there are many more useful idiots like Jackoff Jones standing on his soapbox demeaning good honest Americans and protecting the progressive liberal socialists who would destroy capitalism in this country to enhance their personal wealth.

I don’t know what is more disgusting the evil elitists like Hearst and Shkreli who are leading the progressive socialists or the stupid lowlife useful idiots like Jackoff Jones who support them and their evil agenda.  Regardless, they are PURE EVIL and their evil agenda must be eradicated from America.  Take a stand against evil and their rodents like Jackoff Jones who spread the progressive socialist agenda.
Ooooh, sure, some dude over 100 years ago blah, blah, blah, fukcing, blah.  You know,  back before most Americans had cars, running water,  or indoor plumbing, and Democrats were government hating secessionists that thought blacks were an inferior race.  Ooh how things have changed.

What the rodent Jackoff Jones tried to do in this thread is what has been going on in this country for over a century.  Jackoff Jones tried to get on his soapbox and shine a light on the evil Martin Shkreli in an attempt to paint his evil ways as that of conservatives.  He pretended to take the high ground and show the world how capitalism allows greedy conservatives to take advantage of the down trodden.  However, there was just one problem; it was all a BIG LIE.  Martin Shkreli is a progressive liberal.

If anyone doubts that this misrepresentation, deception, distortion and outright lying by progressive liberals has been going on for over a century, I urge you to do some research.  I suggest one (but there are many) good starting points is William Randolph Hearst.

William Randolph Hearst was one of the richest men in the country and he was a flaming liberal democrat.  Not only did he support the democrats but he was an activist liberal winning several elections as a democrat and had dreams of being mayor of NYC and the President of the United States.

Some things never change, Democrats are still black hating racists who think blacks cannot be successful without government intervention.

Shkreli was scheduled to speak on behalf of Republicans along with a right wing commentator. It's pretty obvious who's side he's on...
