 Journal Prompt

Topic: Prices

Primary Questions:  Are the prices we pay for goods rational?  Can something be overpriced?

Based on supply and demand models, an item cannot be overpriced.  Is this actually true?  Do you pay more for things then you should?

Background Material

I have excepts from both Predictable Irrational and The Undercover Economist that you might find useful.  Ask me for them in class.

Dan Ariely – Author of Predictably Irrational
