If I could get $200 a broom i'd relive the shortage

Would 40,000 pounds be enough. Send two trucks?

Price controls, forget it.

I have to
buy the brooms
haul them halfway across the country
pay the driver
pay for gas and tolls.
sell the brooms
cover my costs
collect a fee for gettin' her done.

A lot of up front risk and if government intervenes I probably miscalculated. I could lose money or break even if I am lucky!

There are better ways to consume wealth without the risks and effort.

Free includes debt-free!
