6 companies poised to raise prices
Are we in for a bout of inflation? Here are 6 companies that can raise prices and still keep us buying. Think 'Avengers' tickets, Newport cigarettes and iPads.

Your goddamn iPad is NOT the same as a life-saving drug. Pricing luxuries and necessities the same way is utterly deplorable, and the author of this trash should be ashamed. You are pure scum for supporting this. Money truly is the root of all evil.
This article makes me sick.
Hopefully I won't need any medication.
The company (Apple) has created products that consumers feel are superior.
If their products are superior than the rest, then why the need to keep releasing a new model every 6 to 12 months?
Amarica is stealing from the poor and givein to the rich. Amarica needs to stop this nonsence.
“Because these companies make the stuff we just have to have … (life saving drugs).” WOW how greedy and unethical can you get?? The cost and availability of pharmaceutical drugs & health care in this country is already a joke. Now they want to make life-saving drugs MORE expensive? Great, so now insurance premiums will go up higher & even more people will be uninsured. The uninsured won’t be able to independently afford the drugs and will just die. Nice.
"Yes, consumers will hate it, but they'll bite the bullet and pay up."
What are you, one of the rich 1%?
I've got a bullet you can bite!
With Luck maybe the superpowers will price them selves out of a job.Sounds like GREEDY LOW LIFE'S to me.....
It's all about money for the investors, but don't forget, the manufacturer is getting a good bite of the apple. With our country in a near recession, these companies are only adding to the dilemma we are in already. Everyone wants to make big bucko's, but no cares about the mid-lower income people who actually give credance to these companies still being in existence. Without these people, the companies would have to fold and go away (since it appears everyone wants to invest in China to do their manufacturing so much cheaper). Who cares if the people of China receive reasonable pay for their work, NO ONE!, except for those like me, because those people do not receive but a simpleton's pay, if any. It probably goes right back into the China coffers. Any and all companies who plan, or have already done so, to ship their economics overseas to China, really aren't American in the first place.
Hey Bill1017 it's the "love of money is the root of evil"
But therin lies the problem, we have so much greed, in the government and in private. That is the wrong god. I know it's taboo in this country to talk about but we need to turn back to biblical teachings as a nation. (insert religious freak here) Im not talking about the money grabbing churches of today, but hte principles where we realize that we as the human race will screw everything up and we need to be saved. Not by Government, but by the only true God
i'm going to need them not to raise the price of newports, i will stop smoking for real!!!!
You don't have to have an ipad, smoke cigarettes, drink liquor, or buy anything you don't need. And people that buy premium brands should be able to afford premium brands. Heal thyself physcians. All can be had second-hand at significant savings if you must have, not "need". As for the drug dillema, that's one of the few places government should share in the costs and help control the profit. Love ya!
