You should head over to the opinions section for this discussion. I'll keep it (semi) car-related here. So... if someone doesn't spend their money, prices go up? So like, if I keep my money instead of buying something, the price of that thing goes up? So like, for example, if demand for a product goes down, and supply remains the same because people aren't buying, then that causes prices to... go up? Wait, hang on. I thought prices were supposed to go up when people weren't buying stuff. Now you're saying prices rise when they are buying stuff. It's almost as though the housing market is its own market, that like... doesn't care about changes in price without regard to salaries or how much other things cost. So like, for example, the price of housing could outpace salary growth. But that would only happen if there was a lot of demand and limited supply. But then if that were true, you'd expect to see housing prices rise in like heavily populated areas... It does! It didn't? Which labor? Automotive manufacturing? The price of the car and the price of the labor to produce it is mostly driven over this time period by inflation. So are they sequestering it or are they buying luxury items? Does not buying things make prices go up or down? Getting back to the mustang here are people buying them or not? Does that make the price go up or down? And what does that have to do with the guy who buys the Ferrari again? When he sequesters his money by buying a Ferrari (which is self-contradictory but ok) this... raises the price of the mustang? Specifically Ferrari says to Ford "hey, so this guy is willing to spend lots of money on our car, so that means even though he didn't buy your car you should probably jack your rates". I can see why you're upset with him, over mustang prices, because of his Ferrari purchase.
