UST alumnus says panic due to inflation is because of false advertising of prices



UST alumnus and social media influencer Mark Lopez recently took to Facebook after he saw a lot of complaints from the Filipino people about the rising prices of good and products due to inflation.

Reports have recently shown that there is a 6.4 rise in prices of products, goods and services in the Philippines.

Lopez shared photos of grains of rice showing that they cost P120. The photos were allegedly taken in a store that sold rice in Pagadian City.

He said that what causes panic is that people think that the P120 is the cost of 1 kilo of rice. But what he says is that actually the P120 is equal to a "salop" or 2.5 kilos. He said that this makes it P48 per kilo.

"So yang P120 PER SALOP eh ang katumbas nyan ay P48 PER KILO pala," he said.

Lopez adds that this kind of advertising from market seller is actually what is causing panic towards the people and hatred towards the Duterte administration and the inflation that he caused.

Lopez seems to hint that there is no inflation happening and simply rumours being spread by people. This amidst reports from economists and different agencies.

"Eh halos ganyan yung mga pinapakalat, tapos sasabayan pa ng mga ungas katulad nina Leni, Kiko, Bam at Risa na eepal sa publiko at panay ang pa drama at gamit sa mga mahihirap na kesyo akala mo may tunay na malasakit," Lopez said.

Ending his post, Lopez says that what the president's economic team should address is actually these opportunistic people who take advantage of the situation.

"Kaya eto dapat ina address ng economic team ni PRRD eh - yang mga nagsasamantala at nag te take advantage sa sitwasyon," he said.

"KAPAG PUNO NA ANG SALOP


Eto ang problema eh...


Ang dami kasi naninindak at nagkakalat ng katarantaduhan sa social media, na ang bilis naman sakyan ng iba at yan yung magbibigay impresyon na may krisis nga...


Tulad nito na kinalat na photos ng isang tindahan ng bigas sa Pagadian City. Sa unang basa eh putres magigimbal ka dahil bakit umabot ng P120 ang presyo ng bigas?!!! (Photo 1 and 2)


Yun pala yang P120 eh isang salop o gantang pala, na unit of measurement na equivalent sa 2.5 kilos. (Note - There are those who say ONE SALOP is equivalent to 2.25 kilos). Naalala ko yang salop yung kahoy na kahon na naka display katabi ng bigas na syang pangsalok di ba? (Photo 3)

So yang P120 PER SALOP eh ang katumbas nyan ay P48 PER KILO pala.

Pero ang lakas maka panic di ba?


Eh halos ganyan yung mga pinapakalat, tapos sasabayan pa ng mga ungas katulad nina Leni, Kiko, Bam at Risa na eepal sa publiko at panay ang pa drama at gamit sa mga mahihirap na kesyo akala mo may tunay na malasakit.


At yang mga ganyang drama din ang nag lalatag ng mind conditioning sa mga tao, at yan naman ang sasamantalahin ng mga oportunista at mga profiteers na negosyante...


Yan ang nagtutulak sa mga presyo para tumaas eh.


Kaya eto dapat ina address ng economic team ni PRRD eh - yang mga nagsasamantala at nag te take advantage sa sitwasyon.


Dapat sa mga yan isama kay Trillanes na makulong at mabitay!"
