: As for colluding to make the consumer pay more, there already is a way that BMW can increase *its* profit on every car...it's called "dealer invoice". BMW can already raise invoice on every car it has by $20,000 and there's nothing that you or I can do to stop them, other than not buy their cars. That is the only power that we have now, but it is a power we would *still* have with a fixed-price structure.

Don't sell yourself short as a consumer. The power wielded by walking away if the price is too high is more potent then even the most stringent price control legislation that any government can cook up.
