Money grubbing is business and economics at its finest. Given a small supply or high demand, the company can up its price to make more money. The main focus of business is to increase the stockholder's capital in the company. Look at the drug company selling Epipens. It is ugly, the company is making huge profits, but the customers need the medication. And, the company's product is protected by patents. Yes it does make me sick to see such blatant greed and disregard for your fellow human being.
Capitalism does work best in a mutually cooperative environment rather than a spy-vs-spy world. Maybe we can add restrictions to patents to where the holder cannot sell for more than 5% of some set value.
Only in Europe, and everyone at the time slammed the Europeans for it, calling them all the names under the sun for wanting to protect their citizens against the slimy, money-grubbing actions of greedy, foreign corporations.
Funny I only remember people saying "Thank God for Europe!"
I developed a bespoke HTML editor for use in our intranet as the editor for articles, etc. it works completely with IE9+, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Vivaldi and even Firefox. I have just been told that I might now have to make it work with Edge as we are having to now support Windows 10 as we get new PCs in. My solution is to make sure Chrome is installed as standard and default on our new PC images!
