Sorry for being a bit late on posting this..


Modern day Robin Hoods have robbed a supermarket belonging to the Masoutis chain, one the Greece's biggest, in the northern city of Thessaloniki and redistributed their loot to shoppers in a nearby street market. A group calling itself the Initiative Against Rising Prices claimed responsibility and said that the act was a protest against a" consumerist mechanism which places profits ahead of survival".

This type of incident happened repeatedly in 2008 in Greece (saw it on TV here in Greece), as a part of Greek citizens reacted to hyperinflation and the government's lack of action against ricing prices.

Won't these type of incedents invariably raise the prices for groceries if they occur enough times just as shoplifting and theft from stores results in higher prices for goods?
