Walden University Economics Discussion
At the meat counter of a local supermarket, two shoppers were overheard complaining about the high price of hamburger. They concluded that government should not allow the price of hamburger to rise above $2.25 per pound. Do you think the shoppers would actually be better off if a price ceiling were imposed to lower hamburger prices? Why or why not?
What about the producers of beef? Would they be better or worse off with a price ceiling?
