Higher & Higher

Amid volatile costs for raw materials, CFOs grow bolder about increasing product prices.

Price Hikes a No No

I always feel price hikes are an indication that there is inefficiency in resource procurement, production and allocation. By right prices should fall as economies of scale and scope are enjoyed by companies. By increasing prices it shows that there is a discrepancy which is depicted in developing countries where inequity and exploitation by corporations are taking place. Also, major national projects are brainchild of despots that are only too willing to throw money away.
