why do you hate capitalism?
This. To most everyone who has posted.
It's interesting that the reporter went on about this not being a free market, yet pointed to no barriers to entry. This isn't telecom or railroads, it's friggin sunglasses. My kids could started making and selling glasses if they wanted to.
So Luxotixa is an evil monopoly because they kicked everyone's arse fair and square? Give me a break. If you don't want to pay their ridiculous prices (I do believe they are ridiculous), do like me and buy the cheap crap from Costco.
But let's not hate on them because they are successful participants in what is, in fact, a free market, despite what 60 Minutes says.
