Price Gouging

I believe that price gouging is not only the correct thing to do in a disaster, such as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, but the moral thing to do as well. When prices remain low, while demand is extremely high, supply becomes suppressed and as a result, crucially needed supplies and services are not available. If prices would be allowed to rise in disasters, those most affected will have goods and services available at a high price, as opposed to no goods or services at a low price. This is moral be...

But if Samantha offered me $100 to accompany her to a dog show, then I'd accept it. Dogs at shows are judged by a small handful of experts. They might also have a people's...

Hello. My name is AppleAddict439, and i thank the challenger for accepting this debate. Let"s start in 1792, with the first U.S mint. Back then, pennies were made out 100% copper. There was no zinc in the actual penny. But, the market changed. The value of copper went up, and, due to inflation, the value of the penny went down. After that, the penny became almost completely zinc. Then, in 2006, the old pennies were found to have a value above 1 cent, so people began to melt them down to ma...
