MADRID, 12 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Minister of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration, José Luis Escrivá, stated this Monday that the proposal of the second vice president, Yolanda Díaz, on the price of basic foodstuffs does not imply a price control mechanism, but rather "moral persuasion". "Well, what you are looking for is to appeal to the responsibility (of the large distributors) to help families in the face of price escalation.
Escrivá, in statements to RNE collected by Europa Press, has indicated that different initiatives are being put on the table so that prices are moderated, something that he considers "positive" in a context in which the rise in prices is being "important". ".
In relation to Díaz's proposal, the minister stressed that, "from what he has understood", it is not a price control mechanism, but rather something that economists call "moral suasion".
"It is not a rule nor is it about coercive mechanisms to determine prices, but to appeal to certain elements of responsibility (...) This sometimes works or not," said Escrivá, who has indicated that this also depends on the market infrastructure.
