The law of supply and demand is a beautiful idea.
It takes a little bit of time to understand it, beyond the common regurgitation of labels.
“Oh yeah, right, supply and demand, basic economics 101.”
It’s the implications of supply and demand that are beautiful.
If something has low demand and high supply it will be very, very cheap.
If something has high demand and low supply, it will be very expensive.
But the beauty is not on the descriptions of these basic ideas.
It’s what they mean.
For example, what does it mean when they say, “the cure for high prices is high prices?”
This simple statement indicates a function of the “hive mind.”
Or what Adam Smith referred to (and is mostly misunderstood) as the “invisible hand.”
For example, let’s say you live in cheeseburger city.
And for a while the cheeseburgers are $5 a pop.
But something happens, and cheeseburgers start going up to $6, and $7 dollars.
The first response is to wonder why.
But this is not necessary.
Nobody needs to know why.
People that don’t mind paying $7 a burger will still by burgers.
People that decide $7 is too much, and they’ll switch to something else.
AND people are thinking about going in to the burger business will check their numbers, and figure they can make a decent profit if they sell their burgers for $6 a burger.
So the high price of burger sends a signal to both the buyers and potential sellers.
The previous burger buyers nope out and decrease demand.
The potential burger sellers get in the game and increase supply.
Both of these send the prices back down.
Nobody never needs to know WHY the burgers went up in the first place.
Every burger maker, every potential burger maker, every burger buyer, every potential burger buyer, only needs to know things that are important to them.
Individual humans making on-the-ground decisions based ONLY on their own self interests keep this seemingly magical system in equilibrium.
Meanwhile, In Reality
At least in theory.
The one thing that ALWAYS messes this is those goofs who need to know and CONTROL everything.
And unlike people in the ideal world of supply and demand, who make their own decisions and choose their own actions, we’ve all been brainwashed by the power hungry goofs in charge.
The natural response to ANY problem in modern society is NOT self-directed action.
It is to whine and complain and point out the problems.
Right on the heels of that adolescent strategy is to wait around for somebody ELSE to come and fix it.
And guess what?
Since this is very, very common, something that is in very high supply, it doesn’t equate to any value.
You know what DOES create value?
Let all the other folks wait around for saviors that will NEVER come.
Get in the game and get it done.
