What do you think about price gouging during natural disasters? When Hurricane Irma hit, this was a hot topic of debate in the United States and John Stossel wants to hear your take!
Some more information from the Stossel in the Classroom site:
Natural disasters often bring people together, as they undertake rescue operations and work to rebuild their communities. People outside the affected communities usually offer additional support. But what about those that see a disaster as a way to make money? Watch John Stossel’s video about “price gouging” and create a 1-3-minute video, arguing for or against laws that prohibit price “gouging” during an emergency. How do such laws affect disaster victims? How do they change the incentives of potential suppliers?
Prizes are available to contestants. These include:
If you have what it takes, get those cameras rolling and submit your video to Stossel in the Classroom for the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes!
