Founder of The Interdisciplinary Symposium, a Teaching & Research Conference for Free Market Intellectuals (http://lync-sync.com/symposium.php ) The purpose of our Symposium is to bring to light the interaction of Free Market Principles and Academic Freedom in Higher Education: how it informs and advances our economy, our society, and our lives. The secondary purpose is to have professors and instructors meet like-minded people to network and establish support groups through their research. Finally, since our system of government depends on the Free Market remaining free, we need to teach our students that the Free Market is a morally good system for living, working and governing. Associate Professor of (Free Market) Economics No matter what Econ101 teaches us -- my tips for you: Follow the money - you'll always find the right answer. Do your own research - do lots of your own research - so you know the truth when it hits you in the face. When the data points you in a particular direction, forget theory, go the direction the data takes you. Remember - the forces of Demand and Supply cannot be conned - they always work, whether you want them to, or not. So, when fools advise that "there's not enough of fill-in-the-blank good or service, and therefore price will drop" double check to see what grade they earned in Economics, because I betcha they failed it.
