Elizabeth Warren takes aim at supermarket chains over soaring food prices
Experts react to Elizabeth Warren calling Powell a ‘dangerous man’
Donald Luskin, Trendmacro CIO, and Ed Yardeni, Yardeni Research President, discuss Elizabeth Warren’s recent comments about Biden’s decision to renominate Jerome Powell as the Federal Chair on ‘Making Money’
Sen. Elizabeth Warren accused three major grocery store chains of exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to exponentially raise prices for American consumers, even as the companies rake in record profits.
Warren, a former Democratic presidential candidate, suggested in separate letters to the chief executives at Publix, Kroger and Albertsons that the companies had used their massive profits earned in 2020 to reward executives with bonuses and make additional stock buybacks, all while jacking up the price of food.
WHERE ARE SURGING CONSUMER PRICES HITTING AMERICANS THE HARDEST?
"Your company, and the other major grocers who reaped the benefits of a turbulent 2020, appear to be passing costs on to consumers to preserve your pandemic gains, and even taking advantage of inflation to add greater burdens," Warren wrote.
