It's the market stoopid

Big Day Out could become last day out, says Maori Party – New Zealand’s source for entertainment news, gossip & music, movie & book reviews on

FFS….Economic illiteracy from the Maori Party and MSM over the big day out.

I fail to see why ticket scalping is bad. Ticket scalpers are good, they efficiently allocate scarce goods and services.

If someone can’t get their shit together to organise the buying of tickets to something that is a)held every year, b) the date is known well in advance then yes they should, nay deserve to have pay scalpers high prices for a very rare commodity.

Ticket scalping is a very visible example of market forces at play.
