Across China and in Hong Kong, but also as far afield as San Francisco and Rome, stores shelves have been swept clean of face masks amid surging demand. This has given rise to a simple question, but no easy answers: how to address the mask shortage so that those who need them can get them?
This is correct. I have looked all over for masks and literally all online stores and local stores are out of stock near me.
approach, offered by most economists, is to let market forces do the work. This means allowing sellers to charge higher prices in response to surging demand. Basic economic theory posits that when demand outstrips supply, producers tend to raise prices. Those who can and want to pay the higher price—for example, people at the highest risk of exposure or transmission—get their hands on the scarce masks. Prices rise until a new equilibrium is reached—that is, when demand again matches supply.
This is why women are able to ‘‘charge’’ so much for access to her body, i.e be chad or be very wealthy or very powerful. Its why literal millionaire college athletes are hitting up your local becky on tinder.
Eggs are in very high demand, like these facial masks. A woman produces only hundreds of eggs in her life, while a man produces millions of sperm, eggs are the masks, sperm are the consumers of the masks, hence inequality, inceldom and sexual starvation for the mass of men.
Why is our healthcare system so filled with inequality? small supply of doctors, mass demand of doctors.
Why is our dating market so unequal? small supply of eggs, mass demand of eggs.
Why is our job market so unequal? small supply of jobs, mass demand of jobs.
This proves that all human existence is truly deep down, is a competition for limited resources.
