In my opinion, the high prices for everything are causing the economic crisis. If prices came down, more people could afford to buy what they need. Markets would make more profits from increased sales.
The higher prices go, the fewer goods and services people can afford. Stores remain empty; stuff stays on the shelves; food at supermarkets spoils. So, what good are higher prices?
If greed is running the nation's economic system, then it is no wonder the United States is in trouble.
I hope businesspeople will meet the needs of the people before we all perish from lack of necessities.
Taxes cannot be obtained from the jobless and the homeless. I hope government officials realize that and do something to improve things.
