The healthcare law provides an important and exportable model for reshaping the economy. Health insurance companies may only keep 20% of revenue as profit. There are many things that a model society requires from each of us, if we don't have certain things, there can be no equality. Notice that the 20% cap wasn't applied to services but an actual product. The complexity in deciding market value for services makes profit caps for services unrealistic, but I can see no reason this shouldn't be applied to retail. A 20% markup cap on retail could bring the affordability of needed items into focus, such as communications, clothing, food, furniture, ect. Also, applying a profit cap to retail could singlehandedly restrict inflation and put a jimmy hat on any action the fed takes.
