Liberia has given a leading foreign investment firm 72 hours to pay a $25,000 fine for hiking the price of chicken eggs.
According Liberia's Daily Observer newspaper, Fouani Brothers Corporation raised the prices of eggs from $35.89 per carton of 360 eggs to $70 per carton.
Let's see. The original price, per BBC, was 10 cents an egg in bulk. For imported eggs that's spectacularly cheap--comparable to what we pay here. I have a little trouble believing that number.
Try another source: Numbeo site on the cost of living says eggs are (today--when you look at it it may differ) $3.70/dozen (480 LD). ($6.25 for a gallon of milk)
A man who has one watch knows what time it is...
(*) No, I don't know whether this is the 12-egg carton or a 24-egg carton.
