Kudos to Amazon for pulling all these 3rd party thieves that they find.

He's in the wrong sales market. Only pharmaceutical price gouging should be allowed in America.

Screw him!!!! As someone who’s Active Duty USAF currently in Afghanistan I can do nothing but shake my head in shame. He tries to make himself out to be a good guy but is really just a POS. I completely understand trying to be a capitalist however there is a time and product to capitalize on. To buy stores out of medical and cleaning supplies when there is a pandemic going around is just sad. Remember karma is a B Mr. Colvin.

I agree, he needs to be in prison. Bad thing is that our friendly, neighborly pharmaceutical company does exactly the same thing.


a CVS in Va was closed the other night for price gouging

There is nothing wrong with making a little money and he did go around and collect it up but got greedy. Buying it for 3.50 and selling things for $20-$50 is something he should be embarrassed about.
Remember, we don't have to buy it just because he posts it for sale. Its like any other "supply and demand" item. When people panic others will take advantage. He might as well have a yard sale because he cant sell it back to any business.

If you don't allow prices to rise--some might call it gouging--you lose the signals that cause people not to overspend. The alternative is rationing, like one bottle per customer (and you think people don't cheat or get mad when that happens?)

Some examples:

Hand sanitizer and TP normally sells for $3, so anti-price-gouging laws in a "crisis" will say it's gotta be $3 during the "crisis". So when people go to the store in a panic, they buy 10 bottles and 50 rolls of TP. Did they really need all that to get them through the "crisis"? Or did they just panic buy because the could? Now if the price was to go up to $10 bottle or even $50 bottle, people might stop an think..."Hmm, maybe I only need this one bottle, maybe two tops." That means there's going to be 7 or 8 more bottles left on the shelf for the next person.

Now mind you, no one NEEDS hand sanitizer. All the health officials keep saying that and that washing with soap and water is the best thing. So hand sanitizer is a luxury "feel-good" item, almost like chai tea and lattes.

When gas supplies are reduced, prices would normally go up. But if a refinery blows, there's a "crisis" so anti-gouging calls begin. So instead of gas running up to $8 or $10/gallon, the law says it was $2.15 yesterday before the refinery blew, it must be $2.15 today and going forward. We've seen how this plays out: people rush to the pumps to top off every vehicle they own and fill every portable canister they can get their hands on. The pumps run dry in the first hours, and then there are "No Gas" signs at all the gas stations for days. If gas ran up to $10/gallon, would people panic buy as much as they possibly could?

Evacuating in front of a hurricane, the family arrives at a hotel. Price-gouging laws say you can't raise the price of your rooms. So Mom & Dad say, "we'll take 3 rooms please, one for the Bobby and Susie, one for Grandma, and one for us please". And the family right behind them in line is forced to head to the next hotel and keep hoping they can find temporary shelter. If the room rates tripled, maybe the first family says, we'll take one room and cot and we'll make due for the night.

With a hurricane in the news, but a week from landfall, Bob, who lives in Kansas but is out of work, realizes that he could make a little money if he were to take a risk and spend some time on the road. So he goes to his local HD and Lowes and buys as many generators as he can fit into his trailer and on his last good credit card. He starts driving to Florida, where landfall is coming soon. He starts selling his generators for $200 more than he paid for them in Kansas 2 days ago, and is arrested for price gouging. Crappy reward for the risks he took. He realizes he should have sat on his ### and let people in Florida NOT have generators, which could continue to sit on the HD shelves.

The same people who complain about price gouging will gladly drop $10 for a can of beer at a football game, or $7.50 for a soda or $3 for a bottle of water...makes me think: If it's OK to charge $3 for a bottle of water at a football game, why do people think it's wrong to sell a case of bottled water for $50 during a "crisis"? Why can't the bottled-water seller just say "I'm using stadium pricing..."?

They're the same people who complain about scalpers, but won't donate to IPTAY for the right to buy tickets at "face value".

and are willing and able to pay outrageous prices for them, can’t get them.

So by trying to teach these people a lesson, Amazon is denying anyone from using it.
