Book Review: Why Does Popcorn Cost So Much at the Movies and Other Pricing Puzzles
McKenzie Paperback October 29, Prices and offers may vary in store. Prices are what all trades, whether at the local mall or across the globe, are built around. Tey facilitate trades among buyers and sellers who don't know each other, meaning they make less costly, or more socially benefcial, the allocation and redistribution of the planet's scarce resources. Fun but also illuminating on the power of markets to value your time and the products and services you purchase. It looks like a good microeconomics primer to me - a nice mix of thoughtful price theory and contemporary examples.
Tyler Cowen recommends the book as well.
