Editorial: Embarrassing Situation

(A Revised)

Weeks ago, a local daily in Monrovia reported the establishment of training bases, as well as the recruitment of Ivorian dissidents, Some Liberian mercenaries in Liberia’s Grand Gedeh County. The repeated publication of the news was characterized by condemnations and denials by the Government of Liberia and a number of senior officials and citizens from Grand Gedeh County. Just last week, a U.S-based rights group, Human Rights Watch reported the recruitment and training of child soldiers in Liberia’s Grand Gedeh County to fight in neighboring Ivory Coast.

Since 2006, there seems to be no attempt to properly regulate the prices of goods and services which continue to “sky-rise” at will across Liberia. As a result, Lebanese and other foreign merchants continue to decide the fate of thousands and thousands of consumers by determining how their goods and services are priced. The boisterous manner in which most of these  business people defend their actions against the Liberian people leaves one to wonder as to what is actually  going wrong with our price system as it relates to the role of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry-the institution created by Liberian Law to regulates goods and services, as well as their prices.
