I bet lots of people here pay prices for beer that a lot of people think is stupid. A man dying of thirst in the desert would happily pay $100 for the last bottle of water. Is he stupid too? I'd say he'd be stupid not to pay it.
Ah had it backwards. Thanks!

True, but as economists like to say, in the long-term we're all dead. You are assuming we're already in the long-term but we're not. And the fact that beer is still a profitable business proves that. Profit is not fixed, some breweries are more profitable than others and not just because their costs are lower.

tl;dr. Back to beer stuff. So this guy walks into a bar, and then, well, he orders a beer.

I think I missed the punchline.

Beer?! I thought you wanted a Bud Light!

Wait. That might be backwards.

I just missed this whole econ part and I'm pissed. I am a fellow econ major and missed this discussion. Fortunately I'm drunk and do not wish to restart the argument. Go economics!
