Default Re: Wal-Mart Selling Toshiba HD_DVD for $98!!

The reason why laws making it illegal to sell below cost exist, is so that a company with deeper pockets cannot simply undercut the competitors and run them out of business. These kinds of laws are to help local business's, however they in cases like with Walmart will hurt consumers because doing such things is regular policy.
You should never think that your politicians understand money matters of those who they represent, they typically make significantly more than the working class and have abstracted themselves from society. In my opinion, you should write email to your representatives when you identify large problems as such, and make sure to make your correspondence concise, clear, polite, and include background and foundation. If you don't share your viewpoint with them, your relying on others to do it for you, and we know how that works out.
