Econ 101

“People who charge higher prices for hotel rooms, or for other things in short supply in the wake of some disaster, are especially likely to be condemned for ‘greed,’ but in fact the relationship between supply and demand has changed. Prices are simply performing one of their most important functions – rationing scarce resources….In short, prices force people to share, whether or not they are aware of sharing.”

Economics is interesting stuff.
