Starbucks Prices Are as Plain as Black Coffee
Starbucks has been under fire recently over its prices. State media says the international coffee chain has been ripping off China's coffee drinkers.
Under the Price Law and related regulations, if the price of a product is higher than the market price for similar products, then a company can be punished for illegal profiting. However, the high-end coffee market in the country is not perfectly competitive, so it is unclear whether Starbucks has violated the law.
