Price Gouging

Julian Sanchez repeats a version of this joke, which I rephrase slightly:

Three (former) business executives are in prison for “white-collar” crimes, and they are comparing stories.

The first one said, “I charged higher prices than my competitors, and I was found guilty of price gouging.”

The second one said, “I charged lower prices than my competitors, and I was found guilty of predatory pricing and unfair competition.”

The third prisoner said, “I charged the same prices as my competitors, and I was found guilty of price-fixing and collusion.”
