Perhaps the government should determine where grocery chains can and cannot locate new stores and what items they should be selling in which locations. That would no doubt result in lower food costs for everyone.Yes, it would be nice if market forces caused innovative entrepreneurs to open stores where the customers are rather than concentrating their efforts where everyone else has their stores.And yes, it is ok for govt to provide incentives to build in under served areas, and even to limit new stores (where everybody else has theirs) usually through zoning laws.Do we really need the glut of vacant big box stores? Do business men need common sense? Or do they need help from outside forces?
