Global recession seems to be a hot topic these days. So, we thought we’d explore the current cost of living. Turns out that a lot of folks feel big businesses are exploiting people in various ways. This could be through market monopolization tactics, manipulation of supply and demand and in some cases just overpricing of goods way beyond what should be ethically acceptable.
So, what are a few items of purchase where greedy companies are totally exploiting people to make maximum profit? The people have spoken and we’ve selected some of the most popular responses to compile the following list. After all, knowledge is power and if we want to change something, first we need to educate ourselves and hopefully it will lead to the change we want to see in the world.

I know everybody is going to give better answers, but for the life of me, I cannot understand why suitcases are so expensive.
They’re just plastic shells, a zip and some wheels, yet they sell for hundreds.

Human pharmaceuticals. My dog needed a chelation medication that my vet specifically said was on the pricy side but recommended a pharmacy that she worked with. I called with prescription in hand, and they quoted $3,000+ for a month’s supply. Then the rep stated they accidentally read the cost for humans. Dog cost was actually $60. Same dosage, same pill count, but adding chicken flavor and putting a little dog on the label dropped the price 98%.

Feminine sanitary products. Or just products targeted towards women in general. Especially in the US, I never realised how much women there were paying for pads until I visited family there. Might as well use dollar bills as pads at this stage.

Airport food and drinks. $7 for a granola bar. $6.95 for water. $22 for beer. $17 for a chicken wrap. $9 for trail mix. It’s criminal.

Baby formula, if you can find it.
Diapers should NOT be this expensive especially considering how often they’re used.
