Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb..
BBC Breakfast really seems to be dumbing down lately.. This morning they were talking about how holidays outside of school time are more expensive than those during term time..

So they had a travel agent on, to explain that prices are driven to satisfactory equilibrium by supply and demand, and that everything is set by market forces.. Stating the obvious much? If they were too costly, nobody would be doing it..

But the thing is, if you couldn't work that out already, then I doubt seeing that piece on the news would make you understand it. Because if you couldn't work it out, it's because you don't understand supply and demand, in which case you're hardly likely to accept it as a reason without having the whole thing explained to you..

Perhaps the price of knowing how the world works is having to put up with people who don't..
