Money, Shit, and True: Don't Outlaw Price Gouging After Harvey. Let the Market Work Newsweek - 4 hours ago Related coverage Hurricane Harvey Is When We Need Price Gouging, Not Laws Forbes Aug 27, 2017 Show less The economic case for price gouging Quartz Aug 27, 2017 Price gouging during Hurricane Harvey: Up to $99 for a case of .. EXon E on Synergy Deli Independent Bank 3.600.อ181 713.600.6655 8163 ATM chrisdigay: leftist-daily-reminders:Warehouses of goods exist, owners fence off these resources in order to extract profit out of people in dire need. Capitalism corrupts our human instincts and emphasizes our capacity to be horrible to each other. fuck shit The irony about freemarket theology, which is what I consider it, is that it makes the claim that a free market will lead to the best possible outcome for both the consumer and the business and thus the entire nation/society, yet we can see here that letting the market do its thing aka letting corporations do whatever they want creates a schism when it comes to benefits: the benefits all go to the massive corporation and the consumers who are supposed to benefit from the allegedly benevolent actions of the market end up getting screwed. When exactly does the worshipped supply and demand come into play to save the day? No consumer is demanding to pay this much money. Free marketers will retort with well the government is responsible for making these companies monopolies!! REALLY?? And even if that is true (in some cases it is) having no government and no regulations at all I doubt would translate into the utopía freemarketers promise. The market is incapable of fixing many problems and leads to the creation of monopolies. Competition doesnt always lead to innovation and often leads to mightier companies buying out and destroying smaller ones. This notion that the freemarket represents everyones choices is absolute hogwash. Idk why this made me so mad like wtf

Being Alone, Christmas, and College: You get 1 Billion dollarsbu You have to spend ALL of it in one weekend or lose everything nyctaeus: goingtopshelf: punchbuggydragon: breelandwalker: irontargaryen: *cracks neck* my time has come Okay, first? Pay off all your debts. Take out a small loan and pay it off right away. Buy several hundred vacant houses. Schedule repairs for said houses with reputable contractors and make sizable down payments in advance. Get everything in writing and hang onto those deeds. Buy a large open parcel of land that is being auctioned for development. And when I say large, I mean LARGE. Sink millions into paying off people’s Kickstarters / college loans / medical bills / mortgages, and give generously charity organizations. That alone will carry off a lot of money. Once you’ve got things down to a reasonable level, say $1m, buy yourself a house, furnishings, appliances, and a dependable car. Pay everything off so that you own it free and clear. Purchase about $200k worth of something easy to liquidate (i.e. gold, gems, bonds, stocks). Put the rest onto prepaid credit cards and wait for Monday to roll around. NOW THE FUN BEGINS. You now have commendable credit and a shining public reputation. Fix up and flip those houses, sell them for fair market value or below to families who need them, or create non-profit homeless shelters. (After all, it’s not like you need to “make” money, this is all running on the proceeds from the property sales.) Sell the parcel of land to developers, or donate it to public works as a park or open space. Have them name it after you. Retire to your fully furnished home. Liquidate your extra assets, or leave them to appreciate in value for a later date. Make Christmas epic with those gift cards. Keep the extra money in the bank and keep your day job. And don’t worry about taxes when return time rolls around, because you’ll be able to write off several millions’ worth of charitable donations. Basically this This is someone who paid attention in finance class.
