In this segment of Questions, Brian Hayes joins us to talk about the following three questions:

  1. How does ultra over-pricing influence artificial demand?
  2. If the sport of Basketball never saw the likes of Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant, would 1990s Basketball inserts be as popular as they are in today’s market?
  3. In what ways do bulk product breaks influence the onset of an arbitrage?1
