If you're set to high, and competition is set lower, then the consumers go for the cheaper option and you lose business. Simple.
If you want someone to offer $1 bread, then go start that company on your own. Figure out how to do it and go to town. Compete with the other guys and succeed. But, you shouldn't legislate a maximum price. That defeats the entire purpose.
