The odd thing about this latest round of fast-food discounting is that all three chains know it represents false salvation. They also know, or at least they should know, that they are no longer competing just with each other, but also with fast-casual chains, including Chipotle and Panera.

It's an easier play, and it could bump up short-term sales at the expense of profit margin, but it addresses none of the fundamental reasons fast-food burger joints have struggled against pricier rivals.
