    Interesting about the price controls for basic food needs. I didn't know that.

    I found it interest that “the Chinese “ supermarkets were called out. Here in the USA I think that would not be acceptable.
    But not my country although I wish it were .

    I agree! Quote from Angelo's newsletter:

    Minister of Finances introduced a new app to compare prices for groceries in the supermarket.This was done in an effort to stop local Chinese supermarkets from jacking up the prices for basic need products, which have a fixed price by the Government.
    The main basic goods that have a fixed price by the Government are: sugar, coffee, powdered milk, white bread, tea, rice, flour, baby food, butter, cooking oil and eggs.
    More items will be added soon to the list of basic food by the Government.
    Consumers can now report any supermarket for charging extra for basic food items.
    Price for gasoline and diesel will also be available on the app

    Wonder where we could find the app and a list of those "fixed prices"? I'd be interested to see what all is included, and where the cheap gas is...
