Politics and Economics

Much can be said about the impact of some price formers in economic terms, but few know the truth from within.

  Supermarket   chains are just a link (the last) in the marketing of food products and obviously have a cost to finally put it in our basket, depending on the service, attention and quality in the proposal of your premises.

The margins with which these trades operate are directly related to their structure, the purchasing power according to their conduct and obviously the volume they dominate.

Far are these from provoking a model that can raise  inflation ; in fact, I am closer to believing that they resist increases (I say so knowingly) and struggle not to apply the changes in  prices  they receive from their suppliers.

This does not mean that they do not take advantage of the circumstances of a speculation, considering the handling of large stocks of goods, but I encourage categorically to deny that they are directly responsible for the increases we perceive in their gondolas. They are not price makers, because in their policies there are constant margins that allow them or not to compete with each other, to conquer us.
