Price collusion in Vietnam
Me: Why was yesterday’s price 10K per kilo but today’s 8K?
Mango guy: Mango was cheaper this morning at the wholesale market
Me: There are over 20 mango carts here on the street. Surely you all don’t go to the same market.
Him: No we don’t
Me: How do you make sure the guy up the street isn’t selling the mangos cheaper?
Him: We call each other
Him (smiling gleefully and poking me in the stomach): Yup. We have each other’s number and we change the price in sync!
