Re: Price Discrimination

The other point is that price discrimination benefits the price conscious consumer because you will get a lower price than you could get in a non-price discriminated world. Using the movie ticket example above, because theatres are forced (due to transparent pricing) to not discriminate, they have t...

Re: Price Discrimination

Oh. . .and price discrimination is not illigal unless you do it based on statuses afforded special status by the Civil Rights Act (gender, race, etc). It is seriously an integral part of the airline industry today.

Companies should be able to price goods however they see fit. The supreme example of price discrimination that we all engage in every day are airline tickets. Late purchasers and business travelers are heavily discriminated against in terms of pricing. Without the ability to sell the same seat for 1...

There is a considerable downside to !xp for pets. It is already quite easy to level up any of the pet classes.
